NEW USER Contest March 2014 “WIP Thread”
Sponsored by DAZ 3D and RawArt
Are you new to the 3D World? Are you at the beginning stages of learning 3D rendering? Have you been around for a little bit but feel you could benefit from some feedback or instruction? Have you been around awhile and would like to help other members start their creative journey? Well then come and join the fun as we host our newest contest...
DOF - Depth Of Field
This month’s contest is about DOF, Depth Of Field, or how to put something in focus while keeping distracting elements out of focus.
Objective: Render an image using depth of field to focus on a particular item.
It should not be a portrait with focus on the eyes and blurry backgrounds though, way too easy and too common. Think more like a photographer working for National Geographic's, who focus a bird on a branch in the middle of the forest, or a news photographer focusing one person in a crowd.
