depth of field
Depth of field is a measure of how much of a picture is in focus. The amount of depth of field varies from picture to picture, depending on a number of different factors. DOF is one of the most important creative controls available to the photographer. By learning how to control it, you can ensure that everything from your feet to the horizon appears sharp. Alternatively, you can make sure that only the subject is sharp and the foreground and/or background is out of focus, for an artistic effect.
The Arts Warehouse is holding an Advanced Digital Camera Workshop Saturday, January 30th from 9 to 12 that explains and explores using depth of field to create award winning photographs.
