Understanding ¨Depth of Field¨

Vodpod videos no longer available.

BBC is always a reference for those who want to learn about the media industry. Sam Bailey from BBC College of Production gives us some basic but powerful tips to get the most out of your camera.

¨Depth of field relates to how much of your image is in focus at a certain distance from the camera. A shallow depth of field means only a small distance between your camera and what you’re filming is in focus. This means the background and foreground will be out of focus and blurry. This is an effect that draws the viewer’s eye to the subject.¨

Enjoy it.
