Depth Of Field
Okay.. First off, I apologize for stealing this image, but it is for good reason! It is a GREAT photograph that displays how the use of depth of field can completely change the feeling of a photograph.
Here's one for the 35mm DSLR gang.
This photograph that is a perfect example of how opening the aperture, and compressing the lens of your camera creates a shallow depth of field that will draw your eye to what matters. In this case it's the Buck's head and antlers. Nothing else is in sharp focus but what's important in this photograph. Not that you want to take every shot in this fashion, but taking a few like this adds impact.
So open those apertures and compress those images, boys!
Nice tips! Thanks for sharing!
Most of my hunting or trapping photos consist of a few photos with cell phone of the critter alone. I have a Cannon PowerShot SX150IS, but don't carry it with me. To set up some good shots with me in the photo would require a trip to the truck for the camera and also would need a small tripod or similar to get the camera at the right height and angle. I definitely could improve on my photography and composition skills. Thanks for the info.
