A message from the author –
“I remember years ago when I joined the ‘more serious’ photography forums. The first thing that astonished me was the super-soft backgrounds behind the images on display.
I knew that I wanted to do the same in my pictures, no matter what!
Later, I learned that a soft background is not always a positive thing – it can also have a negative side.
It is something that must be controlled.
But how is that done? By controlling something called ‘depth of field.’
In this guide, we will have a look at depth of field (DoF), including what it is and the factors directly influencing it.
Even more importantly, I’ll discuss how to manipulate it.
Finally, I will give you a few ideas about how you can make depth of field work for you!”
