Pugs on Lark

Cute little dogs! For this shot I used my Konica Minolta 7D, DSLR, as I wanted to control depth of field. Using a Sigma 28-70 2.8 lens I shot his at about f3.5, focusing on the front pug. Depth of field or sharpness from front to back in an image is controlled by several things including lens focal length and camera to subject distance. Wide angle lens have great depth of field. Closeness to the subject limits depth of field. If I used a pocket cam, the depth would be deep and it would be physically impossible to throw the back pug and fence out of focus. But then one could spend an hour in front of the computer using Photoshop. My philosophy- try to get it right in the first place. Jeff
