Looking into Depth of Field…

DEPTH OF FIELD – The distance between the nearest object and the furtherest object within the frame, the range of the  image that is ‘IN FOCUS’ and is considered acceptably sharp. 

Notes from watching the video and understanding of the concept:

The 3 main factors that affect the Depth of Field (DOF)

1) Distance to subject

2) Focal Length

3) Aperture (F stop)
