I need help from the photographers floating around Word Space or anyone who can help
I was reading a photography book today and it said “..if you want the foreground, subject, and background all in focus, use a smaller f-stop.”
Am I missing something here? I thought a smaller f-stop would blur the background by giving a shallow depth of field. I could be wrong but reading other sources tell me otherwise
Shouldn’t it read “…if you want the foreground, subject, and background all in focus, use a LARGER f-stop”?
For context, the author, David P. Busch, was talking about tips on taking B&W pictures
If someone could set me straight, it’d be greatly appriciated. I thought I was the aperture king…not so much after reading that line
