Depth of Field:  Depth of Field (DOF) refers to the area of the scene which appears well focused. DOF can also be described as the optical zone of focus in your photograph and the distance between the nearest and farthest points that appear sharp in a photograph.  Today we will learn (and look at many examples of) how Aperture, Focal Length and Distance control sharpness in a photograph – also known as Depth of Field (DOF).
