Reading Other World's Words

2021 52 Three Challenges 1069 marco lenseBooks in their purest form transport us to other worlds, thoughts, stories, and world views. What an astounding object is a book. A universe encapsulated.

This was shot with my amazing 1960's Nikkor 50mm F1.4.


This week, we're taking on Depth Of Field - a super important concept in photography that often separates those photos that look "amateur" from those that look "professional" or as I like to call it, "profesh". Essentially, depth of field is the point or "plane" in the photograph that is in focus. Everything BEHIND that point, or IN FRONT of that point will be blurred. (the DEPTH where things are in focus, you get it?) A shallow depth of field (low aperture number, like f/1.4) will have a small sliver of the photo in focus while the rest of the image (in front and behind this sliver) will be blurred or softly focused - think of portraits where the subject stands out sharply from a softer background. On the other hand, a wider depth of field (high aperture number, like f/22), usually seen in architecture or landscapes will have most, if not all, of the view in focus. * PRO-TIP * Depth Of Field doesn't depend on aperture (f-number) alone. These 3 things combined will have an impact on the depth of field: The aperture of your camera (f-number setting), The distance from the subject to the camera, The focal length of the lens on your camera. So, get out there and experiment with Depth Of Field - remember, this is another tool you should be using to make your story more powerful! So find out your story FIRST, and then use these settings to get you there!
