More about depth of field #photography

I have written a lot about depth of field but it is difficult to explain in writing. Basically, the field is where the image is in sharp focus. That is the distance from the camera where the subject is and the sharpness falls off as we view things farther away from the camera or nearer to the camera. A wide aperture will make our subject sharper but the sharpness falls off quickly, whereas a narrow aperture will make most of our image in focus.

Taken with a wide aperture for a shallow depth of field

Shallow depth of field

I took this picture yesterday and I wanted the people quite sharp. It was low light and so I used the flash but needed to get a lot of light into the camera and I wasn’t too bothered about the background so I used a wide aperture for a shallow depth of field.

I’ll end with more images, see if you can guess whether I used a wide aperture for a shallow depth of field or a narrow aperture to get distant objects into focus, too.
