Testing The 50mm Lens With My Cat
It’s raining outside and that means I don’t want to test my new 50mm lens outside yet. But I tested this lens already inside, especially at f/1.8 to get a nice blurry background or shallow depth of field. The problem is however that depth of field can become too shallow sometimes. Well, this is actually not a problem, it’s rather one of the reasons why I wanted to get this 50mm lens. What I meant is, that I do now have to get used to different aperture settings, or to be more exact to control this and to learn when the aperture is set too wide. In the case of the photo in this post, aperture was maybe too wide, because one eye of my cat is more clear than the other. I think I wanted to achieve a blurry background, but a sharp focus on the cat. It’s not that I dislike how the photo turned out, but it’s a great example that owning a new lens means to experiment with it and to try out different things, but I like that. Do you think both eyes should be sharp in a cat portrait?
