Bring your cameras and learn about Depth of Field
Let’s discuss, look at some examples, and practice some techniques that will help us understand how to better use depth of field in taking better photographs
Depth of Field: ..The range of distance in an image where the focus is acceptably sharp. ..It's the part of the image that's "in focus", which can be a personal opinion. ..The range that's in focus is a gradual, continuous transition from sharp to blurry. ..
Benefits of Understanding DOF: ..Choice to creatively change/control a photo (not allow camera to make all decisions) ..Isolate/emphasize subjects from background/foreground
Basic Principles of DOF: ..DOF is about how much of image is sharp, not how much is blurry ..DOF is a continuous range of "acceptable sharp" ..DOF applies to objects in front, as well as behind, subject
Basic Factors That Determine DOF: ..Distance between camera & subject ..Focal length of lens ..Size of aperture
