f/5, 1/320s, 18-105 at 52mm
This image is from the third shoot with the builder. I again like this shot as it show traditional builders equipment which could be many years old. For the image I used the largest aperture possible at that focal length to give a shallow depth of field. I have then placed the focus point on the fourth rung down so that each end of the ladder gradually becomes less and less sharp. This emphasises the texture of the wood where it is in focus, which if the whole ladder were in focus would perhaps not be such a noticeable feature of the image. I like the way in which the struts of the ladder come out towards the frame and the viewer.
