Re: Playing around with depth of field and I think I finally get it?

That’s a great visual. If you want to know the numbers (which focal length, which sensor, using what aperture), you can download a Depth if Field calculator app and have an understanding going into a photo what you might end up with.

What you’re seeing is that the plane of focus gets deeper the farther away your subject is.  And the blur increases the farther you get from the plane of focus, whether in front or behind.  But fall off is about 1/3rd in front and 2/3rds behind.

Really helpful to understand when trying to take a group photo.
