CORRECT DEPTH OF FIELD IS CRUCIAL FOR YOUR VIDEO
We have invested in cameras that ensure every corporate video we produce will engage your target audience. A particular technique that enhances your video is controlling the depth of field. So what is depth of field?
Most of us have watched a TV drama or documentary where the main subject is in perfect focus, but the back ground is blurred out. This is to make what ever the subject of that particular scene “pop” out, in laymen’s terms it serves to get your customer’s complete attention to it. This is often referred to as a “shallow depth of field”.
Sometimes however we need to show as much of the scene in focus as much as possible, for example a landscape scene or one showing a busy restaurant. This is often to establish a scene and to give as much information to the audience as possible and this is referred to a “deep depth of field”.
There are 3 things that determine the depth of field of a particular shot and these are:-
The aperture that the camera is using
The camera to subject distance
The lens focal length
