34/365: Infinikeys

34/365: Infinikeys

After Thursday's 365 photo was such a no-brainer and an easy win, I thought I would take yesterday morning off to deal with other things around the house instead of trying to get a shot in. That in turn led to a dearth of creative energy throughout the day, and I was largely uninspired as the day drew to a close. In desperation, I turned to my laptops and attempted to arrange them in artistically interesting ways.

Here we find out exactly how shallow a shallow depth of field can be--and this, at f2.0, isn't even the end; my 50mm goes all the way to an oft-unusable f1.4. The color balance was all jacked up thanks to the "soft white" (aka "doused in yellow") lighting in my dining room, so conversion to black and white was a must in order to have anything serviceable.

I'm intrigued by the apparent narrowing that the shallow DoF caused in keys closer to the lens; it really messes with my sense of how perspective is supposed to work.
