What If

What IF.

Here’s a short film starring a wonderful friend of mine Helen Uskovic AKA Madam’h. I have been lucky enough to have done a number of stills shoots with Helen, video shoots as well as being a D.O.P on a feature film she was in a short while back. We are currently looking forward to our next shoots coming up soon to promote her and the Nite club she MCs at Helm Bar. http://www.helmbar.com.au/

This short film has been done for a really inspiring cause by Nova Employment who do amazing work making a difference for so many people. The film itself is a touching, thoughtful piece that makes one stop and think about life and the choices we make or are made for us and the limitless possibilities of chance and fate. http://www.focusonability.com.au/

Test shoot Nikon D5300

Nikon 5300

Nikon recently released the 5300. With Nikon’s new Expeed 4 processor this lightweight DSLR packs a bit of punch.

At a quick glance some notable aspects are the cropped 24MP sensor, very impressive dynamic range at 14EV, the ability to shoot FULL HD at 60p (note the “p”), no OLP Filter and built in wireless. It boasts good low light performance as has a lightweight decently compact body.

With no filter and a decent MP count we would expect some sharpness yes? I took a few shots earlier with a Nikkor 80-200 ED set at f9 results below.

How to Adjust Depth of Field

In simple terms depth of field is basically how blurry the background and foreground on an image is and it is measured from the point of focus in your image.

Depth of field is controlled by adjusting the cameras aperture settings. A wide aperture will decrease the depth of field and a smaller aperture will increase it. The focal length will also effect the depth of field typically the longer the focal length the more exaggerated the depth of field will be.
