Using Depth of Field and Aperature Examples
Following up on last weeks tips.
For the above Bald Eagle Photo I opened up the lens using F4.
This allowed me to put the background out of focus. The simple blue sky allows you to concentrate on the eagle minus distractions.
So when you take a photo ask yourself how important is the background? Sometimes simple is the best for strong compositions.
Other times you may want a dramatic foreground to background all in focus.
For this photo of Katahdin in Maine I used F16.
This allowed me to keep the branches in the foreground all the way to the Mountain in the Background in sharp focus.
