I posted this image the other day on my different facebook pages and I had a viewer comment.
“I am just curious how you achieved such a blurred background using an aperture of f11? It is a gorgeous shot!”
I mentioned that I have shot many times as high as f/22 and blurred the background. I added a link to my video called “How to Control Depth of Field” which explains how I achieve this while shooting in the higher f/stop ranges.
I thought I would soon see a sale of the video expecting the viewer would be curious enough to purchase the video at the price of $9.95.
But no sale.
Depth of field is the number one issue macro photographers struggle with.
What always amazes me is that photographers spend thousands of dollars purchasing equipment and not willing to spend ten bucks educating themselves on how to make better images.
They have it backwards.
I do give away tons of free how-to info here on the blog, but sometime I do have to sell something to make money to support my business.
Here is the link to the video if you are interested in learning how to blur background with high f/stop numbers.
