f/2.2, 1/80s, 50mm
This image is from the garage shoot. I took this image with the 50mm lens so that I could use a large aperture. For this shot I have used an aperture of f/2.2 to give a large enough depth of field to keep the whole of the mechanic acceptably sharp, while shallow enough to put the background out of focus. This gives and interesting effect and reduces the effect of distracting elements in the background. I like the lines in this shot with the arms, metal bar and tire forming a triangle, and the body and tire two uprights. The oil on the gloves also hints at the nature of the work.
