Why you need to master depth of field to get tack sharp photos

Watch the video above to see how to use depth of field will help you take super sharp photos WITHOUT boring and complicated explanations.

Are you sick and tired of disappointing blurry photos? Do you want to be taking photos that are tack-sharp? Then you need to master depth of field once and for all!

There are two key elements to getting sharp photos. The first is through depth of field, and the second is by using a fast enough shutter speed, but shutter speed is for another lesson.

Sometimes you will want a long depth of field, and other times you will want a short depth of field. If you leave your camera in auto mode then you will never be able to decide in advance whether your photo will have a long or short depth of field.

The photo above is an example of a short depth of field because the foreground is sharp and in focus but the background is out of focus and blurry. Portrait photos look best when the background is out of focus. You can achieve this effect by using the smallest f-stop number on your lens, and you can magnify the effect even more by zooming in to the maximum amount on your lens.

The photo above is an example of a long depth of field and you know this because both the foreground and background are all in focus. Landscape photos usually look their best when they have been taken with a long depth of field. This can be achieved by using a high f-stop number on your lens.
