These are both examples of shallow depth of fields, which is where the subject closes to the camera is the thing in focus. I used an f-stop of f/5.6 and 48 mm. I could have achieved a better similarity by my subjects face in better focus to really bring it out from the background.

This is examples of shots that use a mid depth of field, which is where the background and foreground are out of focus and the subject is in focus in the middle of the shot. I used a f-stop of f/29 and a focal length of 33 mm. The background isn’t as out of focus as it should be however is still slightly out of focus for it to look similar.

These are examples of deep depth of field which is where everything is in focus. I used an f-stop of f/5.6 and a focal length of 25 mm. This could have come out better if i had more time to adjust to the exact settings.

 

We had a group of four people who all needed to get their own set of three images so we were a little pressed for time which meant the pictures above didn’t have as much time to perfect them as they should have. Although they were rushed, they looked good and there were a good amount of similarities when I put them side by side.
I was also limited to the amount of props and locations I had so there were going to be some obvious differences but overall the effect was the same.
