For me, one thing that sets the image slideshows apart from video is the quality of the image. I don’t mean pixels or resolution but the surface quality. One obvious manifestation of this is the use of depth of field.

Of course the mediums are different and the mechanics mean you don’t always get the same toolbox to play with. But depth of field is one thing we can all take advantage of – snappers and video alike .

So what is it? How do you achieve it?

All is revealed in an excellent, in-depth video tutorial on Depth of Field by Justin Snodgrass. In true online frendly fashion the full 20 minute film is chunked in to 6 easy chunks.

Just right for a lunch hour.
