About this activity

Depth of field is a central notion in photography. ​It describes an area of sharpness that extends in front of and behind the subject in focus. Beyond this zone, blurring is more or less present.

This zone can be adjusted according to three parameters that will be explained and practiced during the course: ​the aperture of the diaphragm, the focal length of the lens and the distance from the subject.

Playing on these three parameters allows you to affect the result of your photo!

This is the creative part of photography: mastering this notion is a guarantee of successful portraits and landscapes; it also allows to highlight a subject in the scene around it.

This course will teach you how to :
- Use the A or Av shooting mode
- Make a sharp portrait with a blurred background
- Photographing a landscape with maximum sharpness

During this course, which is held by videoconference, small practical exercises are of course planned. In​ this respect, please make sure that you have your device loaded and equipped with an empty image memory card.

This course lasts between 1h30 and 2h and includes a theoretical explanation and exercises (within the limits of space of the house/apartment).

Possibility to have the class at 10am, 2pm or 6pm. Please message me when you have booked to confirm the timing.

This beginner's course is part of a series of 4 introductory courses for beginners (available by videoconference and face-to-face, in different durations). These courses are offered separately: courses 1, 2, 3 & 4.
