Harry, you always seem to really enjoy my photographs - I wanted you to see these.

I have a friend who's 20 year old son is moving out into his own place - he's in a little band that plays country music and she wanted some photos for his wall. She's planning on framing some sheet music, maybe buying an old instrument or something at a flea market, anyway - making a grouping on his living room wall, and wants a couple of photos enlarged for it. She asked me to come up with something with a guitar and maybe a keyboard.

Here's the guitar shots that I've come up with so far.
What do you think?

Great shots Sis. The reason you do so well with your photography is because you have vision! Imagination anyway. I am very flattered you gave these to me.

One thing. I've been trying to get a guitar to grow in my garden for years with no success. How did you do it?

Haha Harry!

I second Harry, amazing vision and imagination. Great composition, superb talent.

hahahaha! Harry, you just crack me up - I never woulda thought about that.

I have to admit - I have seen something similar by another photographer so it's not completely original - just my version of it.

This right here is more of what my imagination occupies itself with...

I thought the first one was of four pints of Guinness.

Those are very nice Sis. I'm with his mom although I like the second, off-centered version, best.

Is is depth of field you're using to get the softness or a filter? Share! :)

lol, Harry!

Michael, I used depth of field on these. Hold on and I'll go check my photos and tell you the camera settings.

On the last 2, the one you like and the mom likes, I ran an action on those called "Midnight Color" which gave them the yellow/black tones. The others are the true colors.

camera settings

OK - on all of these, I used my 100mm lens - ISO was set for 200, aperture was f2.8, and the shutter speed ranged from 1/125 to 1/200. The softness or blur of the background was due to the aperture being wide open, at 2.8, causing a very shallow depth of field. These were taken later in the afternoon, between 5:30 and 6:15, I think - getting a little on the dark side - if I had been out there much longer, I would have had to bump the ISO up which would have made them more noisy.
