Playing with Depth of Field

Recently I was in the Barrington Tops National Park and was testing out the Fujifilm X-T1 camera and the 18-135mm lens when I came upon this beautiful moss-covered tree. I was curious how, when I changed the aperture, the depth-of-field changed too.

Shallow or Not?

  • Aperture affects Depth of Field (DOF)
  • When is a good time to use it?

Highlights of the following video:
0:21 – f22 aperture image
0:38 – f5.6… see the difference!
1:21 – Which do you prefer?
