Depth of field

Choosing the depth of field of a photograph is a crucial part of creating an effective photograph. Selective focus on a certain part of the image directs the viewer’s eye to what you want them to focus on. As you can see in this example, the viewer’s attention is directed to the center of the artichoke, putting the emphasis on the texture of the vegetable.

Try this at home! Work on taking photographs of an object using varying points of focus and amounts of depth of field. See how this affects the image.

Happy shooting. 🙂
