A to Z Challenge: D is for Depth of Field

Welcome to today’s post for the great Blogging A to Z Challenge!

Today is D for Depth of Field.

According to this article:  http://digital-photography-school.com/understanding-depth-field-beginners/, Depth of Field as something to do with focus.  I guess really, focus is king in photography all the time.  It sure has cropped up a lot so far in this Challenge!

Anyway, back to the lesson at hand.  A shallow depth of field is a narrow focus (so kind of like what I was doing with bokeh), and a deep depth of focus has everything in focus.  Kind of.  Maybe.  I think.  So, a small F number, and the closer you are to the subject = shallow depth of field, and a larger F number, the farther away you are from the subject =  deep depth of field.  I’m not going to talk about focal length.  That sounds too complicated for me right now.

What I have here are some pictures first with a deeper depth of focus.  I need to work on this one out in the world beyond our backyard.  Time for a walk with the old DSLR!  Tomorrow…

And now, here are some shallow depth of focus shots.  I’ve done more of these for my other posts for this Challenge.
