Ok, so here are the basics of depth of field. Fundamentally, depth of field is focusing on one specific element in your field of view and by adjusting the aperture setting on your lens determining what else will be in focus.
So let's talk about one of the most recurrent terms you'll ever hear in photography. When it comes to Depth of Field, we can establish two basic types, Wide and Shallow.
In its simplest form, a wide depth of field ensures that the main highlight of your photographs like sunsets or group shots of people are sharp across the whole of your image.
On the other hand, a shallow depth of field lets you draw the viewer’s eye into specific parts of the image, creating a visible distance between the subject and the rest of the otherwise flat, two-dimensional photograph.
