General

Depth of field is a basic concept in photography that one must master to the fullest. With it, we have more tools to express ourselves. It helps us to isolate our subjects from backgrounds, or on the contrary, have massive details from close to far objects. Moreover, hyperfocal distances are the key to maximize depth of field, making the camera an even more powerful tool, enabling us to make images where it would not be possible without.
