SHORT DEPTH OF FIELD
When using short depth of field, use it appropriately. Opening your lens up to f2.8 or even wider can look superb, but use the effect wisely. On a front three-quarter shot which you may wish to use for a print, there’s nowt worse than the majority of the car being out of focus! To combat this complaint, angle the car to ensure one of its sides dominates the image. This way, you can still shoot ‘wide open’, but you’ll have the benefit of keeping the entire car sharp.
