Depth of Field

Depth of field refers to the area seen by the camera lens within which objects are in focus. Narrowing the depth of field can improve the composition of a picture because your view is limited to just what the photographer wants you to see. This technique directs the viewer’s attention to what is sharp, using other, out-of-focus elements to complement the subject, add visual interest, and provide a softer, warmer feeling to the photograph. Sometimes, even a mistake in the background can look good when it is shot at a low angle and thrown out of focus!
