  1. Excellent. Very nice long or is that deep depth of field.

    • I’d call it deep. Tiny aperture to make the room dark equals lots of DOF.

      • I was not aware of the link between darkness and DOF. Is the ISO boosted?

        • I’m shooting with a single studio strobe in that photo. There was enough ambient light in the room that if I’d used a large aperture, the background would’ve been fairly bright. I wanted it darker, so I just increased the f-stop. The strobe was in a softbox with grid, so it wasn’t spilling much light onto the backdrop. After I had the backdrop as dark as I wanted, I increased the power to the strobe enough to get the right exposure on the subject. (And that’s how you make a white or gray backdrop go to black, too.) The DOF is a secondary effect–the smaller aperture for squeezing out the ambient also deepened the focus. I didn’t mind in this case.

          • Paul, thank you. I do understand your explanation. I appreciate the extensive explanation.

          • Too much, right? 🙂

          • Yes, a little but informative.

          • Scoring a 10 on the pedantic scale.
