Travel Words 2020 #23 – Depth of Field

Here is my entry for Jude’s, Travel Word Blog, 2020 Photo Challenge with the topic of Depth of Field.

These tomato leaf photos were taken with my Sony A7III Mirrorless Full Frame (ILCE-7M3 v2.10).  I used my Sony E 30mm F3.5 Macro lens.

F/22 – a deep depth of field (high).  In this you can begin to see the grain of the wood on the bench I had this plant on.

F/13 – an intermediate depth of field (medium) for this lens.  Notice that the rest of plant is coming into focus.

F/3.5 – a shallow depth of field (low) where the focus is only on the leaf

Which depth do you prefer?

I’ve put together a list of challenges and their hosts.  So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog.  Feel free to contact me anytime.  I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.

  1. The shallow depth of field works for me here with the focus on the leaf shape and tiny hairs. Lovely examples of the different effects the DOF has on an image.


  2. What a great example! I’ve been playing with my settings, specifically for landscapes (I depend too much on my auto setting). I had not experimented with a close up like this! I really love all three, thank you! 😊 …but my tendency is to blur the background. I like the blended colors.


My blog is my way of communication these days, comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks for stopping by to visit.
