Many thanks to MollyFootman and Darkglass for getting me started in exploring more of the possiblilites within the Poser program. I've had Poser since 2003 but haven't even touched it's capabilities yet! Mea culpa! In this four for one submission, I show the difference fStop settings have on depth of field, (DOF). Again, thanks to Darkglass for suggesting these settings. Follows is his explanation: "Dof... Really is only noticeable, at the lower F stops.. F4 F2.8 F2 F 1.2...anything above F 5.6...will be minimal.. Depending on the image and the focus point, your also going to notice a increase in render time, Again, let me express my deep appreciate and gratitude to both MollyFootman and Darkglass for sharing their extensive knowledge base with me! Many fine kudos and fine praises go out to both of them! Of course, my example is just a quick and somewhat simple depiction of what can happen. Images at a larger size I'm sure will show much more noticeable results! I was just super curious to see what the difference were. Thank you for taking a peek! Your support is greatly appreciated!

Oh, and you really need to view this at full size to get a better feel for the differences in these settings! Thanks again!

Very cool experiment and results. It depends on I guess what you want focused on more if just the man, the car, or both, etc. Hard to decide which is the best

nice work with DOF. It can be tricky to get right, but you seem to be doing well

Interesting work, here.

Cool experiments, surprising just how much difference it makes, especially when doing landscape or you want something in the fourgroud blurred and the background in sharp focus

the lower left corner seems more appealing to me. never the less a superb experiment

Isn't just the best feeling to discover a new tool to play with!! XD

Of these 4 images, I think the one at F-stop 2.8 is the best. The lower setting causes a bit of sharpness loss in the car as it is at the edge of the field. So much fun! =)
