Depth of field, this is the range or portion of a photo that appears sharp or in focus. Using shallow depth of field is an excellent way to draw interest to your subject. Because the subject is in focus and the other elements of the photo are not. Deep depth of field is preferred when shooting a landscape or skyline photo because you want the entire image to be in focus. To create a shallow depths of field try these settings and tips.
Shoot in portrait mode. On your camera, look for the letter P or a head icon. Portrait modes set the camera to a larger aperture. Aperture also known as f-stop refers to the size of the opening in the lens of the camera when an image is captured. The size of the aperture determines how much light is allowed into the camera. The larger the f-stop, the smaller the opening, so a larger opening like F3.5 decreases your depth of field. Also you can set your camera to aperture priority or AV mode to give yourself greater control over the aperture or setting. Choose a large aperture which is indicated by a smaller number. For example, F3.5 is a larger aperture than F16. Try various aperture settings to create the depth of field you want.
If you have a digital SLR camera use the telephoto lens and fill your frame with the subject, the longer the focal length or your lens, the shallower the depth of field. Finally, move close to your subject, the closer you are the shallower the depth of field will be.
To create a deep depths of field try these settings and tips. Shoot in landscape mode, often represented by the mountain icon. This mode sets the camera to a smaller aperture. Also, choose A or AV mode and the small aperture such as F16 or F22. Experiment with settings to create the depth of field you want. Use a wide angle lens to increase the impact of the deep depth of field. You can also simply move farther away from your subject.
