Class No 2: Aperture and Depth of field (Beginner level)

3h30

Depth of field is one of the major aspects of photography. It is defined as a zone of sharpest focus in front of, behind and around the subject of the photograph. Beyond the limits of this area, the elements are rather blurred. 

This zone can be adjusted according to three parameters that will be explained in detail during the workshop: the aperture, the focal length and the distance from camera to subject. Playing around with these three parameters can significantly modify the esthetics of an image!

 

This is a creative aspect of photography: mastering depth of field will allow you to make great portraits, landscapes, and highlighting a subject in its surrounding environment. 

 

This workshop will teach you how to:

 

-    Use the “A” or “Av” shooting mode

-    Make a portrait with a blurry background

-    Photograph a landscape with higher sharpness

Key Details

- This beginner class is part of a pack of 4 workshops (14 hours)

- Number of hours for this course - 3.30 hours. Depending on the number of students, the course can be completed in 2.30 hours, 3 hours or 3.30 hours.
