For producing dramatic effects in photography with some portions for a picture to stand out, the depth-of-field photography is attempted by many photographers.
such photography, the subject is in sharp focus while the area in
front or behind the subject is blurred.
is advisable to use a wide angle lens and telephoto or zoom lenses
for depth-of-field photography to get reasonable photographic options
for creating drama in photographs. With such provisions in the
camera, focus on part of the picture that you want to be crystal
clear. And, you can make the foreground or background blurred.
point that needs to be considered is that the background of the
subject needs to be the complimentary or of contrasting colour to the
subject for optimal visual impact or dramatisation.
example a green field behind red flowers is an example of good
contrast. The blurred green field in the background would make the
red subject to stand out.
tip is to stop down to a larger aperture, which means a smaller
f-number. You can try starting with f/2.8 with a steady camera grip
or firm rest. Use tripod stand and timer trigger or cable release.
experiment with your distance from the subject for more creative and
dramatic photography. Being a little closer to your subject or
further away can increase the drama of your picture.
