I was sorting through my second batch of FUJIFIM X100T shots yesterday and came across four very similar but still importantly, different pictures. Which one to choose?
Nice effect but nothing special, also the image lacks any real direction in its composition.
Two British backpackers walk into frame, camera settings stay the same but I slightly recompose the shot and notice the texture of the bricks at shoulder height leads your focus to the activity they bring to the shot.
Increase (I say increase but at this focal length…) dof and focus a bit further in to modify the wall leading to the backpackers effect and keeping in line with their increased distance from me. I am reasonably happy with this.
Shifted perspective slightly and focused for a sharp dof affect on the wall, not happy with the result (even though I do love the sharpness of the bricks and sudden falloff), but hey you never know if you never try?
All up, none of these are masterpieces but I think the second one is the best of the lot! What do you think?
