Depth of Field Test

Each cardboard corner is about 4 1/4 in. wide. They’re arranged about 1 1/2 in. apart. First “peak” is about 16 1/4 in. from camera lens (55 mm). I took shots with each peak in focus and at the extremes of the focus ring.

For lighting, I have an arri 150 camera right with a blue gel (spot), and an arri 300 camera left with all 4 barn doors closed in on a small square, red and green filters (also spot).

I would like to fiugre out a way to soften the shadow as it falls away from the object. Right now I think it’s too harsh. i don’t have flags or bounce cards, so that might help.
