SWOT Analysis:

What I was looking to achieve –

  • Use the method of free lensing to emphasis the eyes.
  • Create a small depth of field.
  • Experiment portraiture indoors using natural light and free lensing.

 

What was successful –

  • Created a small shallow depth of field.
  • Only the focused on eyes.
  • Creates an interesting looking portrait.
  • Creates a natural vignette.

 

What was not successful –

  • Hard to work with the free lensing technique.
  • Even though the eyes are in focus they could be more in focus.
  • The top of the nose is in focus.
  • There is a slight light leak that makes the image cloudy.

 

How I would change it –

  • Take more time make sure the eyes are properly in focus.
  • Have a plane background.
  • Make sure there was no light leak.

SWOT Analysis:

What I was looking to achieve –

  • Experiment with the method of free lensing to take a portrait of an animal.
  • Create an extremely shallow depth of field using free lensing.
  • Using the shallow depth of field to make the cat the punctum of the photograph.

 

What was successful –

  • Created a shallow depth of field.
  • Good focus on the cat.
  • Creates an interesting looking portrait.
  • Got better at using the method of free lensing.

 

What was not successful –

  • Hard to work with the free lensing technique with an animal.
  • The middle of the window is slightly in focus so had to blur out more in post.
  • Composition could be worked differently to fit more of the cat in.

 

How I would change it –

  • I would frame the composition to have more of the cat in.
  • Get closer to the cat to make more use of the shallow depth of field.

SWOT Analysis:

What I was looking to achieve –

  • Experiment with free lensing out side.
  • Create a small depth of field.
  • Experimenting with different background.

 

What was successful –

  • Created a small shallow depth of field.
  • Only the focused on eyes.
  • Creates an interesting looking portrait.
  • The contrasting colours in the background give a interesting look to the portrait.

 

What was not successful –

  • Hard to work with the free lensing technique outside.
  • Eye that is in focus is covered by hair.

 

How I would change it –

  • Either focus on the eye that isn’t covered by hair or make sure the one In focus is visible.
  • Step back and make sure the whole head is in shot.
