The video below shows a compilation of images, taken at 120 second intervals over the span of 4.5 hours. I chose to photograph this location and time of day because the light streams into my window very dramatically as the sun sets. I also lowered my blinds so that the striped shadows would cast onto the wall. I thought this experiment would be very helpful research for my project, since it involves such high-contrast lighting streaming through the blinds. I would recommend watching it at 1080p and half of the original speed (adjustable in the settings below).
The photos illustrate the effects of focal length on an image. The images were shot using a telephoto zoom lens at 88mm, 112mm, 146mm, 176mm, and 300mm. The effects on depth and detail are very apparent.

The purpose of these images is to show the effects of depth of field. The series of images were taken from the exact same location. The only setting being adjusted is the aperture value, thus affecting the depth of field.
