Depth of Field
“Knowledge of the means of extending, restricting or just achieving adequate depth of field is a primary craft skill.
Photo Quote: Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary. - Cecil Beaton
