  • November 4, 2020: Deep Dive into Depth-of-Field with Kathy Adams Clark

    Most photographer have a basic understanding of depth-of-field. Set the camera to f/2.8 and the background is soft. Set the camera to f/22 and everything in the scene is sharp. Yet, depth-of-field is really more complicated, varied, and interesting. Join Kathy Adams Clark for this program to learn how depth-of-field changes based on the lens you’re using, how close you are to you subject, and more. This virtual program will also touch on focus stacking to achieve more depth-of-field.
