New Users Contest - August 2012
Sponsored by DAZ3D and Jack Tomalin


Are you new to the world of 3D? Have you been around for a little while and feel like you still have a need to learn somethings to make your renders just that little bit better? Have you learned some tips and would like to help others in this journey into the 3D world? Come and join us as we host our newest contest…


____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
“Depth of Field: Lets Get Focused”

Intent: To help you learn how the Depth of Field feature of your render camera can enhance your images and give you that real 3D photo look. Let’s get that extra something that will help your images have some Impact.

This month we will be looking at what the render camera can do to improve your art. The Depth of Field settings will be the main focus for the month. You will be provided with links to Tutorials and given examples of images that use *DOF in the Lets Get Focused WIP thread. You can do any image you would like within the TOS of DAZ3D as long as you use *DOF in your render. Feel free to use your favorite program and create that peace of art that’s in your heart.

*DOF = Depth Of Field.

The goal of this months contest is how well you use Depth of Field in your render to Focus the main aspect of your render. If it is a landscape the DOF should focus the viewer on the part you wish them to really see. If it is an Action scene the DOF should get us to focus on the action. If it is a Portrait it should get us to focus on the figure. The effectiveness of the use of DOF is what this contest is about. Only the use of DOF will be judged but please do the best image you can. If you need help with lighting or any other part of your render feel free to ask for help in the WIP Thread.

For a list of the current contest rules, please see this thread: New Users Contest Rules
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


This month you can find Tutorials and Examples of DOF in the Lets Get Focused WIP thread. If you feel you need help or would like feedback on your submission please post to the WIP THREAD HERE. People will be popping into the WIP THREAD to give you helpful tips and critiques to help you as you go. We ask that you please keep all comments and request’s for critiques or help in the WIP THREAD. All comments and or request will be removed from this thread and merged with the WIP THREAD, this thread is only for final submissions for the contest.


For those veterans of the forums that would like to help, because this contest is designed for the beginner to learn from, we will be randomly selecting posts offering helpful tips and/or critiques to receive a special voucher as well, so whether you are a seasoned artist or an aspiring one, there is fun for everyone!

"We would like to thank Jack Tomalin who has graciously decided to sponsor this months contest" He will be awarding a special prize to the winner of this months "DOF "contest. To view some of Jack Tomalin's items please see his store front here Jack Tomalin DAZ Store
