Aperture Guide Pt 4: Aperture and Composition
In addition to controlling exposure and creating lovely bokeh, aperture and depth of field are important tools in a photographer’s arsenal in creating effective composition. We explore three main compositional aperture technique: Subject isolation with shallow depth of field, environmental aperture with deep depth of field, and optimal aperture sharpness for flat depth of field.
Shallow Depth of Field | Aperture Guide Pt 2
In this article, we will talk about what aperture is primarily used for in photography, which is to control depth of field (DOF). Depth of field is the front-to-back zone in a photograph where objects appear acceptably sharp. We will cover both the shallow and deep depth of field, as well as the other factors that affect depth of field, aperture, distance between you and the subject, focal length, and the sensor size.
