Depth of field learnin’s

  1. The higher the F-Stop, the larger the depth of field. See below examples:
  2. As the F-Stop value increases, less light is allowed in. To compensate the shutter speed must be decreased or the ISO must be increased.
  3. With a high F-Stop and low shutter speed, a tripod is a necessity
  4. This works best for slow moving or stationary subjects
