Depth of Field: Deep and Shallow

For the project, I really tried to add variety to my photos. I got most of my shots on campus and at Porter Park. I enlisted the help of my roommate Brooke for the first shot. I hardly edited the photos, mostly just using the adjustment tools. I found the shallow depth of field photos to be easier to take. I don’t know if that’s just because I like the way they look better. But I enjoyed taking shallow depth of field rather than deep depth of field.
