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.
