Exercise 2.7

Use a combination of small apertures and wide lens to take a number of photographs exploring deep depth of field.

Achieving a deep depth of field isn’t necessarily as easy as it might seem. The trick is to include close foreground elements in focus for an effective deep depth of field. Foreground detail also helps balance the frame, which can easily appear empty in in wide shots, especially the lower half. When successful, a close viewpoint together with the dynamic perspective of a wide-angle lens gives the viewer the feeling that they’re almost inside the scene.
