Thread: Creating Bokeh Without Zooming?

    Default Re: Creating Bokeh Without Zooming?

    shorter focal lentgh gives you wider Field of view (FOV). longer focal length gives you narrow FOV. GUess both are standard excepts one refers to focal length and the other is FOV.


    Don't crack your head over it, just keep shooting and exploring what you can do with your gear. When you find a limiting factor (like not getting the bokeh that you want), then you can consider upgrading. Try getting a hold on the 50mm f1.8. Set the aperture at 1.8 and snap away - i think then you'll get what you wanted.

    I dont use any closeup filter cos I capture with real background. Not using macro also, plain simple 30mm (2x crop with olympus system).

    this discussion is how to use wide angle lens to create bokeh, (please refer to post #1), TS have a 18mm lens on 1.5x crop camera, that is like 24mm lens on a 35mm format, to have the background of of focus with miximum aperture setting, need to get extramely close to the subject, to do so, need to reduce the size of his subject, so PINKY is quoted here for an illustration.

    To focus such small subject up close and fill up the frame, close up filter is needed, another more expensive alternative is use extension tube.

    You are using a 30mm lens on 2x crop camera, that is like using 60mm lens on a 35mm format.
