After I leave Mercy I hope to become a journalist. Knowing the basics of photography will help me with future projects and open many doors in the field of journalism. I really became interested in photography and taking this class after seeing several famous photojournalists' work. Through this class I hoped to learn how to compose an eye catching picture, and tell a story through photographs.
Depth of field
Depth of Field is how much of the image will be shown in focus. Having a long depth of field means everything in the image is sharp, not only the subject. having a short depth of field means only the subjects close to the camera is in focus and everything behind it is blurred. To achieve a long depth of field you must have a small aperture and a long shutter speed. To achieve a short depth of field you need a larger aperture and shorter shutter speed.
