Project 52: Shallow Depth of Field | Week 13
If you're not sure what day it is these days, let me assure you that today is Friday. I know that because it's time for another professional pet photography Project 52 blog circle post. It's Week 13 and our theme is "shallow depth of field." Shallow depth of field may not sound like a good topic for a time when we're supposed to be social distancing, but it's actually the perfect time because you don't have to be close to your subject to get a shallow depth of field. Basically, a shallow depth of field is a small field in your image where your subject is in focus and everything else is blurred. This can actually be accomplished several ways and one of those ways is by using a longer lens. For my images this week I used two different lenses to show you the effects of depth of field.
This first image was shot with a 70-200mm lens at 200mm. The parts of the chair that are on the same focal plane as Lola's face are in focus while everything else is blurred.
Because of these unusual times, we are not taking regular bookings for April but will book sessions for May or later. However, for a limited time, you can purchase a $500 gift certificate for only $250! Certificates can be applied to your session fee or a product purchase. When you book a "Best Friend Pet Portrait Session" your session booking fee is turned into a 100% product credit. Gift certificates do not expire.
If you would like to book a custom pet portrait session, use the hot pink "BOOK NOW" button to the right of this post (at the bottom of your screen on mobile), send us an email to suzi [at] petlovephotography.com, or give us a call at 513-288-1650 in the Greater Cincinnati area or at 650-382-3242 in the San Francisco Bay Area.
