Orange a ball

Photograph by Yuri Gusev, vkontakte.ru/yurigusev
Date: December 1, 2011

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Focal Length: 172mm
Aperature: f/7.1
ISO: 500
Exposure: 1/250 sec

Note: Yuri Gusev took this simple shot and turned it into a very interesting photo.  I love the mud on the shoes and the ball.  The subject is pulling up their sneaker tongue sybmolizing that a game or hard work is about to begin.  The mud adds to the symbolism.  The depth of field is really nice in the photo.  Very well done!

Tip: By using an (exposure) setting of 1/250 of a second, ensures that the subject will be in sharp focus, while still allowing enough light in to properly expose the photo. Yuri closed his aperture to 7.1 to get a little less depth of field, but ensures that the subject will be in sharp focus when shooting with a telephoto lens.  The film speed (ISO) was increased to 500 to allow more light in to expose the photo.
