Using Depth of Field in Photos

[Notice the byline? Please welcome Elizabeth West to Photodoto. Elizabeth is a writer by profession and a collector of historic images of women.

Depth of field is a concept dear to the hearts of many photographers. Briefly, it means the depth of the pictured area that appears to be in focus. People describe this area as being shallow or deep. Some may refer to it as narrow or wide. The words don't matter, but the concept does.


Interested in writing for Photodoto.com?

I can't promise much (for now) other than that you'll be writing for (and helping to build the audience of) a PR6 blog with about 1,000 regular readers. Do you have something interesting to say about photography and want to share it with a larger audience? I'm mainly interested in original content authored by you or at least an original opinion about something written elsewhere. Photodoto is not a re-blog or a news regurgitation service. Other than that, there are no time commitments, no minimums or maximums, post only when you've got something interesting to write about that has something to do with photography. Send email to john@photodoto.com if you're interested.
