AtoZ Challenge: PH – D: Depth Of Field

for Depth of Field (DOF)

DOF is significant in deciding if a photo is amazing or little off! As the name suggests, DOF is the part of the photo, which is in sharp focus. Its not a single point, but rather a span, a vertical plane. The depth varies directly with aperture. Smaller F number, smaller DOF. If you want a portrait, a smaller DOF is suitable, and in a landscape, for having both foreground and background in focus, a large DOF i.e a large F number. Having a large DOF helps, if you miss pinpoint focus. More, here.

    1. Thanks!
      In a phone camera, they have a fixed aperture lens, so out of the box, no we cant change it. But the apps like Better camera, they give you the electronic option i believe. Try using the app Afterfocus, its amazing! If used correctly, photos resemble DSLR shots! And nice bokeh can be added too! Hope it helps! 🙂

      1. Hey – there are many with that name and I am confused. When you get time share with the link from web or something to get that exact app.. I should try that 🙂
