Always by OcularFracture Always by OcularFracture
Behind an able man, there are always.
This is an actual fortune that I pulled out of a fortune cookie a few weeks ago, wondering what the hell it could actually mean.
After pondering it for two weeks, I finally came to a humorous realization and brought the fortune and my camera to the store to grab this great photo.
And if you haven't caught on yet, this is a photo of the fortune, but if you look closely, you can see a man in the background holding a pack of Always brand menstrual pads.
The model in this photo is :iconugento:

Thanks! I thought the same thing! Except, apparently people can't see it clearly enough to understand it. But then again, if it WAS an advertisement, they'd probably blast their logo on it, so... Hmmmm. This could potentially make me rich... :devil:

Hahahah, it's clever, but it would have been easier to comprehend if the Always were actually behind him, and he/they were in focus. You should go back and reshoot him standing in front of the entire display! xD

Yeah. I just figured that anyone who had actually seen/used them would understand what they were, and I needed the fortune to be in focus and couldn't really focus on them both, so I thought it was good the way it was. But yeah... I do wish there were a way for the package to be more visible. And I was taking the "behind" part less literally and more metaphorically, as I'm sure the fortune was intending... Not sure what it was really trying to say, though. x]
Thanks for the feedback!

Play with the f-stop on your camera to get a greater depth of field; with a Nikon D40, you can definitely get both the fortune and the background in focus. You can probably even get the background to be just a bit fuzzy, but still comprehendible. I use Always, and I would have never known that that's what he was holding if I hadn't read the description.

Hokay, lol. I'm kind of an amateur. I don't know much about cameras other than how to take a pretty nice photo. What is an "f-stop," and how do I toy with it, if you don't mind my asking?

The f-stop adjusts the depth of field depending on how far/close the lens itself is zoomed in. (So you can adjust it so that either your entire photo is in focus, or only things at certain distances.) I'm not entirely sure how to adjust the settings on your specific camera, but the answer to the question posted here looks like a pretty good place to start: [link] c:

Thank you so much for the help~ I appreciate it! And also, thank you for being helpful, rather than insulting like most people are when they find out I'm an amateur. :'] <3
