Shallow Depth of Field: For these pictures I used a 50mm Nikon lens on a Nikon D7200. I was so excited to use this lens because Brother Miller said it would be good for shallow depth of field. I made a reservation at the school to check one out but I was unable to find my iCard. Luckily, that night a good friend of mine who knew I was taking this class was excited to show me his camera lens and I was able to borrow his 50mm for this project.

I think shallow depth of field adds great emotion to images. I wanted images that meant something to me. I have a passion and a love for the scriptures which is where my first image came from. Using the single spot focus I focused on a quad.

I also have a love for nature, the sun had just barely disappeared in the horizon and the day was cloudy so I was nervous I wouldn’t be able to get a good image but I loved this one. The light was just enough.
Deep Depth of field: For these pictures I used 18-150 mm Nikon lens on a Nikon D7200, which is just the stock that comes with this camera. My subject for these pictures were the I-Center and the Technology Center at the BYU-I campus. With these I wanted my images to look clean and crisp and showcase campus.

I love big windows. I find them beautiful and elegant so I wanted these to be the main subject of this shot.

The technology center is incredibly beautiful. It has exactly what I was looking for a crisp and clean look. There was so many people walking by, at first I tried to get shots with nobody in them but then thought: what’s a building with no people?. So then I embraced them.
