Photoshop Lesson 6 - Shallow Depth Of Field

Photoshop Lesson 6 - Shallow Depth Of Field

What is Shallow Depth Of Field?

Depth Of Field is when your subject is in focus and your background and sometimes the foreground is out of focus. This will draw the eye into the subject and create a nice portrait look.

You can create this effect using a small f-stop in your camera like f-4.5 and having your subject positioned further away from the background. A longer lens also helps achieve this effect.

In Photoshop you can create this effect whenever you see fit.

In this Lesson I will show how you can add a nice Shallow Depth Of Field effect to most any portrait.

Check out lesson 6 and watch how easy it is to give your pictures that professional portrait look.
