Mastering Depth of Field.

Depth of field plays such a large role in the overall look and feel of a photo that I encourage all of my workshop students to quit using program mode and take control of their aperture and depth of field. Letting the camera make this choice seems crazy to me, yet I still see people doing it all of the time. In my latest video post, I explain how and when to use a shallow depth of field vs. a large depth of field, and I talk about using the hyperfocal distance for maximizing your depth of field.
