And when you change the focal length of a lens you change the angle of you. Work gets squarely and kind of styli is when you have a programmed object like to see a dude and the background like to say our shooting studio. If we say, you want a close up of me a headshot ignoring the boring middle ground you can basically, shot that two ways. First with the Y angle lens one of the sharp focal length and has a wide angle of you where I’m close to the camera and taking up most of the frame. And secondly, you can shot it with the longer lens, one with a longer focal length, where I physically have to be further from the camera but I’ve still enough taking up most to the frame. What changes is the background and not just how much of that you can see whether it’s a little or a lot. Here we are going to talk about depth of field, which is the term that we use when you’re talking about focus. And what it means is, the depth measured in feet or meters of the field of you in the lens on a camera that’s in focus at any given point in time. For example, Ryle was focus to this lens on me setting care, close to the camera. But I’m also accepting the B sharp here or here. And that’s because we are shooting this shot we got a wide angle lens, one that’s got a short focal length. And lenses to have short focal length have deep depths of field meaning they are almost everything have been focus. Whether it’s two feet in front of the camera or 20 feet, whereas with the longer lens when it too much narrower angle of view I’m sharp here and here. But blurry by the time I get here and that’s because long lenses wants up longer local lengths have a much shallower depth to field. Much less of their field of view is in focus at any given point in time. And that can be a good thing because when you’re shooting a porker for example the background goes all at the focus and I am features and I look super dramatic. Especially compare to this crowd where you like shall I look at to do to the chair of the green thing or the lens or the box full of stuffs and the ping-pong table or whatever. So, that’s about as far as we’re going to take it with depth of field. If you want to try this stuffs I’ve talking about yourself. You probably can if you probably have a camera with a zoom lens. So pick someone you shoot a buddy or a carrot or a dog and shoot it with different focal lengths but trying to keep the framing the same and watch that we have which is to the background and focus. Of course when we’re talking about depth of field we cannot be ignoring the big determining factor of aperture which is all of the camera worms that we’re going to do a video about that sometime in the future.
