Great westcoastgirl1 2010-04-19 4:36

Hello Helmut

This is my favorite type of photography (the close up shot). What size lens did you use here? Fantastic outcome. Great sharpness and lighting captured. Superb composition too.

Welcome back to the site and Happy Easter too,

Default To westcoastgirl1: Lens size ...

Hello Tosca,
I have captured this close-up with with a 55mm-200mm lens at maximal setting (200 mm). You can find this information by clicking on the view button at more photo info. The focal length of your lens plays a big part in determining the depth of field (DOF) for your images. Think of your lens strength as a limiting factor for your aperture capabilities. The higher the magnification factor, the smaller the depth of field will be, even with large F-Stop settings.

Depth of Field Progression for a 70-300mm Lens
70mm = largest DOF
100mm = large DOF
200mm = small DOF
300mm = smallest DOF

I hope this will help you for your next close-up shot.

Best wishes,
