Intermediate Photography Classes

Depth of Field Reaction

A creative photography workshop to help you in producing images with a creative blur, called Depth of Field.

What is depth of field? Depth of field is the acceptable area that is sharp in front of and behind the subject in a photo. It is controlled by setting the aperture on a lens. Students will learn to apply depth of field by changing the aperture to create images with an emotional impact.

The emphasis will be hands on to help develop a workflow with creative photography techniques. We will be working at JPI's Studio inside and outside (weather permitting) with a model. As a general rule models are usually tipped for their services and gratuities would be appreciated. Tipping is a personal choice and at your discretion.
