One of the major problems photographers face is not knowing how to choose the right camera aperture for their photos. It’s often that a photographer will want to capture a scene, such as a landscape, that’s clearly focused throughout the frame. However, what usually happens is that only the trees in the foreground are in focus and the mountains in the background are out of focus or vice versus. The photo has too shallow depth of field as opposed to a deep depth of field. What went wrong? We’ll teach you in this book.
Other times, a photographer tries to capture that classic “portrait look” with the subject in perfect focus while the background is out of focus and blurred. What tends to happen here is that everything turns out to be in focus. How can this be fixed? You’ll learn what to do in this book.
