Depth of Field – Charleston Workshop

Paul Godwin who has been on three workshops sent me two images from last springs Charleston workshop that shows what I think is amazing use of infinite depth of field.

These two images of Paul’s demonstrates not only great composition but also his technical use of infinite depth of field.

Depth of Field is one of the techniques I work on with clients on all of the workshops. With the right settings and equipment an image can have infinite depth of field where the foreground which is inches away from the lens and the background which can be hundreds of yards or a mile away are both sharp as a tack.

Often I enjoy an image that has selective focus where there is a focus point that is sharp as a tack with the foreground and background have a soft focus. Soft focus images are more artistic but Art Fair clients seldom buy a soft focus image.

Each spring I give a workshop in Charleston, which has always been one of my favorite places to capture images. The rich history of Charleston and its wonderful gardens whose spring blooms give us amazing subject matter for the class.

Paul Godwin emailed a very nice comment on my teaching that I appreciated.

“Paul, you are a great teacher and I have been able to improve my shots thanks to you.”

About europeanimages

Light is both the photographer's palette and brush. Harnessing available light is a skill learned through the study of technical theory and then applying it in the field. My goal as a photographer is to search out the images that interest me artistically, then once I have found the essence of that place I use composition and light to enhance the images.
