Depth of Field Tips

  • 1 min read

Your chosen depth of field - controlled by your aperture - can dramatically change the feel of your image.Photographer Sam Gray took these gorgeous photos of dogwood trees with his Composer Pro with Sweet 35 Optic to illustrate the comparison. The first image was shot at f/2.8 and the second was shot at f/8.


Notice how the image shot at f/8 has a larger spot of focus rendering the the right flower quite sharp, along with more detail in the background. The image shot at f/2.8 just has a portion of the front flowers in focus. Changing your aperture is easy with the Sweet 35 Optic - simply rotate the dial on the front of the optic.


Still have questions about how aperture and shutter speed work? We've put together this Quick Shot Card to help answer those questions.Quickshot2-1
