DEPTH OF FIELD Depth of field refers to the zone of acceptable focus ex­ tending in front of, and behind, the plane of sharpest focus. Within this zone, image blur is negligible and everything may be considered as being in sharp focus. Three factors greatly influence the depth of field : the focal length of the lens in use, the camera-to-subject distance, and the taking aperture. The smaller the aper­ ture and the shorter the focal length of the lens, the greater the depth of field. Also,

To find the depth of field at a particu lar aperture, first focus the lens on the su bject while looking through the viewfinde
