For all you young pixel counters out there, you may find this interesting. So, youve got a hefty tool, but you want to make it appear even more impressive? If youve got a pre-digital SLR or DLR camera, you can easily make "things in the mirror look bigger than they appear" without Photoshop or other photo-editing software. Theres an old standard maxim in photography regarding depth of field, which is the range of distance around the focal plane of the object you want to photograph that appears acceptably sharp. You can easily mess with the depth of field using non-digital cameras with a little basic knowledge and practice. The depth of field varies depending on camera type, aperture and focusing distance, although print size and viewing distance can influence our perception of it, too. Ive tried to accomplish the same old-fashioned tricks with my modern, expensive digital SLR, but without great success. My digital cameras built-in software always out-smarts me by automatically adjusting for my attempts to mess things up. This is especially a problem with night photography, but I digress. Anyway, do a Google on Depth of Field and read up on the basics. Then pick up an old SLR film camera. A 35 mm camera with just a 50 mm lens will do. Get some black-and-white film and start practicing. My squeeze, who sports a comfortable (for me) 6-inch tool is very happy with the nude shots I have taken of him as he reclines back from the camera. It looks as though hes packing 8 or 9 inches, depending upon the side angle. Anyway, I just thought it might be worth resurrecting this information for those who might be interested. As for truth in advertising, I dont really consider this kind of a photo as a lie. Its just making the actual produce look more delicious so the public will buy. Youre subjected to it every day when you read cookbooks, food ads, etc. Enjoy.
