Large Aperture Gives You a Narrow Focal Range



More depth of field is often better than less when you're shooting very small subjects, very close up. For example, this photo is basically the same as the previous photo, but this time taken with a large aperture of f/4. Notice that the depth of field is so precarious in this alternate version that the front of the drop is in sharp focus, but toward the back the drop is already blurring. Now that's a narrow depth of field!
