Image with Low Aperture
I was asked here to produce a photograph where subject matter was isolated from its surroundings and where I selectively considered detail within the image. In essance an image with a small depth of field that is focused on one area or object within the image.
I used a common object to most, the cigarette.
Being late in the afternoon light from my window was fading so I increased my ISO to 200 rather than 100 I used a 4 sec shutter to capture the detail and for more light to be recorded by the sensor. To achieve the objective of an object or area in focus wile the remainder of the frame out of focus I dropped my aperture down to 4.8 with my focus on the third cigarette of the right of the frame in focus.
