Jay P. Morgan: Depth of Field as a Creative Tool
In this video lesson, I wanted to demonstrate how depth of field can be used as a creative tool. I brought a crew out to Vasquez Rocks and used a simple two-light setup to shoot my beautiful model, Gabrielle Tuite. Here, you'll see how different focal lengths can give you different depth of field options. You'll see what lens choice will give you a shallow depth and what lens choice will give you a more scenic deep depth of field.
Here's 150mm at f/2.8
Here's 170mm at f/8:
And finally, 200mm at f/2.8
This type of experimentation with lenses and aperture settings can be a lot of fun. So get out there and figure out what works for you!
