Shooting in portate mode at a low angle or macro would achieve the look or shooting at f4 or lower on manual focus. Alot of programmes will have a tilt shift of centre focus mode, I have one on my iPad for post shot photos. Brinno may have other options?

Brilliant, brilliant pics! Thanks tons for all of those. The detail is amazing. And the more I see of the Gauls' work, the more I admire the Severans who came before. That Severan causeway sitting under the Gauls' aqueduct couldn't be a better contrast.

Hi Justin,

No filters or photo-editing. It just comes down to the aperture-setting (Pete mentioned it as well): if the lens is opened as wide as possible, the depth of focus is smallest (so only a small part of the image is in focus). The photo with the plank was shot at aperture F2 (shutter 1/8000); the picture with the perfume bottle: F2.8 and 1/1000. If I would have chosen F7.1 for instance, the whole perfume bottle would have been sharp on the picture and a lot more of the plank would as well.
I use a program setting on my camera which automatically adjusts the shutter-speed while I manually set the aperture. Basically with that I can influence how much of the picture is sharp or out of focus. This kind of setting can be done with most cameras.
Hope that helps.

Regards,

Pierre

Wow, I'm amazed you were able to get that much of an effect even at f2. I was expecting you to say it was through post-processing... Thanks for the info.

I post these from the blessed comfort of my sofa.
