Photography 101 - Understanding Depth of Field

Deep depth of field

Experiment with Depth of Field (DOF) - Make sure your focus point is spot on. Note that DOF falls approximately 1/3 in front and 2/3 past the focus point. The aperture setting provides the  photographer with a creative tool that we can use to maximize or minimize DOF, thereby impacting sharpness and composition of our photography images.

Good light and happy photo making!
