fifty two on friday ~ week 9 {depth of field}

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. ~Henry David Thoreau

Depth of field determines how much of an image is in focus in photography. Sometimes abbreviated "DOF", depth of field is an important tool to master. DOF allows the photographer to have control over what is in and out of focus within their image.

In some cases, it may be desirable to have the entire image sharp, and a large depth of field is appropriate. In other cases, a small depth of field may be more effective, emphasizing the subject while de-emphasizing the foreground and background.


Please be sure to head on over and check out the site of  San Antonio, TX Family Photographer Amy Craft, to see her take on the depth of field theme.
