Mastering Depth of Field – Part 2

 The basic concepts of controlling depth of field with aperture, focal length, and distance are fairly easy to grasp, and we covered those topics in part one of this series,  but now it's time to dig a little deeper. In this segment, we talk about perceived depth of field, how sensor size and angle of view can affect your ability to get the depth of field you want, and using depth of field to rack focus. There's a lot of confusion surrounding these topics, but a little common sense, and of course a bit of math and science can help us break it all down.
