Depth of Field Help Provided by SPE
The need to master field of view photography challenges has become a mandatory skill in today's visual world. While this previously required various depth of field lens adjustments during a photo shoot, digital technology has provided the means to perfect the entire process during the editing phase. Here are the primary DOF services offered by Smart Photo Editors:
Large Depth of Field (deep focus)
If the entire image needs to be sharp, you will appreciate SPE's skills in bringing everything into focus. To achieve this solely with the original photo, a photographer would use a wide-angle lens and a small lens aperture (higher f-stops such as f11). You will often want a deep focus for landscape photography, still life images and product shoots.
Small Depth of Field (shallow focus)
When you want to emphasize the subject, Smart Photo Editors can help by ensuring that your photo de-emphasizes the background and foreground. Photographers can get this effect with a larger aperture setting (lower f-stops such as f2.8). This is frequently desired for portraits but also provides advantages for events and street shots.
Our DOF Process
Simply stated, our DOF job is to bring everything into a proper focus. At Smart Photo Editors, DOF is viewed as a comprehensive process and not a one-time task. Our skilled photo editors are digital photography experts who understand the underlying DOF formula parameters involving key depth of field elements: focal length, camera-to-subject distance and aperture settings. Just tell us what you want to see in the final image.
