Depth Of Field Tests

Today I have been experimenting with Depth of Field to which I had intended to apply to my shot. It had varying results which are shown bellow.

Base Start Image

Step 1

Applying the mia_lens to the camera.

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Tweaking the setting allowed me to focus on the Bee but left the background looking a little to blured.

Step 5

A few more tweaks made the background looks a little nicer.

Step 6

Zooming out to check focus showed a problem. There was no focus on the closest object. 

Step 7

Tweaking and experimenting with the settings I was unable to really allow the camera to focus on the object closest. I believe it is due to the distance to the objects and the camera.

Although I was unable to master the depth of field, I did get a glimpse of what it can do and the problems that follow. It was somewhat successful however and this could probably be sorted with a technical conversation at some point.
