Large Depth of Field

by Ashley Boakye-Ansah June. 07, 2017 597 views

Depth of field is a measure of how much of a picture is in focus. A lens can only precisely focus on one plane at a time. However, there's always a certain amount of the picture in front of, and behind, this plane that also appears to be sharp.

Technique

The smaller the aperture you set, the more depth of field you get and the more of your shot appears in focus. So on a typical zoom, a narrow aperture of f/22 will keep more of the shot in focus than a wider aperture of f/5.6.

The aperture can easily be altered by the photographer in a number of exposure modes, including Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority.

Editing

The editing software program that I used to edit this photograph was Adobe Lightroom. While editing I wanted the sky to be the main focus to portray the gloominess and dreariness of the British weather. I darkened the grey clouds a bit and highlighted the trees. I believe this gave a nice background for the trees. The subject that stands out the most is the yellow car in the middle of the road.

Technique & Settings

I was walking back home after a GP appointment and decided to take photos on the way home. I noticed the gloomy weather and thought maybe my Apple iPhone 6s will able to capture the scenery. The settings I used to capture this photo was letting less light in. The ISO was set at 25 and I believed this helped to capture the gloomy weather this day. The focus was set at f/2.2 and the shutter speed was at 1/300s.

A Moment's notice by Ashley Boakye-Ansah

I had just came from a friend's house and I noticed the weather was still looking beautiful in the evening. The bus was taking long so i decided to walk up and down taking some photos. There is a park opposite the bus stop I was at and I noticed how the sun was peaking through the gigantic trees. I thought maybe if I took a picture it may look nice on camera. I said it too soon.

I took this photo with my iPhone 6s camera and I couldn't believe. The camera captured the sky, the clouds and the sunlight streaking through the trees beautifully.

When I saw the bus approaching from afar I so wanted to sty and take more, because it was definitely a sight to behold.

Getting off my last destination, I decided I still wanted to take some last photos walking home. The sun was slowly setting and it looked so beautiful I wanted to capture it.
