Depth of Field or DOF, is the term used to describe how much of the image is in focus.
There’s a bit of a myth (and people have said this to me) that you need a “really good camera” to capture a shallow DOF
It’s actually a combination of lens and sensor size!
But it’s largely controlled by how close you are to your subject, the closer you are, the more of the background will be out of focus (OOF)
With a blurred background, the subject of the shot will “pop” that’s to say, leap off the page
It’s a popular look for good reason, but not suitable for very single shot
A lot of time and effort goes into this site.. If you like what you see, and/or if I’ve helped you then perhaps you’d considering making a donation?

One way you could help me is if you want to buy ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING from Amazon, (that’s anything; cameras, books, shoe polish, whatever) if you do so using the links below, then I will receive a small percentage of your expenditure, and you will pay NO MORE than you would have paid anyway.
This will also work if you USE THOSE LINKS to click through to your own country.
To do this, click a link above, scroll to the bottom of the page, then select your country from the drop down menu, as shown below
Another way you could help, especially if you don’t like Amazon, but do like me, is by making a donation
The donate button is in the top right hand corner or can be found on the link below
Thanks Very Much!
