Depth of field

Photo Plus - - A-Z Guide -

A mea­sure of how much of a pic­ture is in fo­cus, from the near­est point in the scene to the cam­era that looks sharp, to the fur­ther­most point that looks sharp. Depth of field is de­pen­dent on the aper­ture used, the dis­tance that the lens is fo­cused at, and the fo­cal length of the lens. Em­ploy­ing the cor­rect depth of field is a key pho­to­graphic skill and changes the em­pha­sis of the shot.
