Depth of Field

In Photographyby Jerad HillLeave a Comment

The depth of field of an image is the distance between the nearest and farthest objects that appear in focus. A large depth of field with have more distance in focus, and a smaller depth of field with shortening the distance that is in focus.

The depth of field or DOF is affected by lens aperture, the distance between camera and subject, and focal length of the lens.

Images taken with larger apertures will have shorter depths of field, and less distance in focus. Appropriately, smaller apertures will have more of the scene appear in focus.
