within a scene that is considerably sharp, is small, covering a smaller depth in the scene. This resulted in apicture that is only sharp at the focused subject while the foreground and background are blurred.Shallow DOF is important when taking portraits as you only want the subject to be sharp and stand out inthe picture, free from other distractions in the picture. It is also important for taking macros or close uppictures of small objects, as you want them to be really sharp since they are small. Shallow DOF allow your pictures to have some depth to it, giving it a three dimension effect.When we use shallow depth of field, the following attributes on your camera will change:1.
Aperture will be wide2.
Aperture value will be small, such as f/1.83.
Lens opening will be wide "Town Walks" captured by Alex Lewis
Factors that Influence Depth of Field
± This is the most obvious factor that will determine how DOF affect the outcome of yourpictures.
ow much of the picture is sharp will be determined by the aperture you set while in manual oraperture priority mode. As stated above, a small aperture value (e.g. f/1.8), will create a shallow DOF inyour picture, while a large aperture value (e.g. f/22), will create a deep DOF in your picture.
