Good use of depth of field, the nose the focus point.

Thanks Geoff,
It took a couple of tries I must admit.
I'm still on the Auto Focus stage at the minute, I've tried a few Manual Focus photos but need to work on that.
My friends given me half a dozen good photography books but I never seem to get the time to sit down properly and go through them!

Auto / manual focus has nothing to do with the depth of field (or focus). Depth of field is the amount of the image in focus in front and behind the point of focus and is determined by the aperture used. The more open the lens aperture (the smaller the number e.g. f4) the shallower the depth of field. Conversely, the more closed aperture (the bigger the number e.g. f22) the greater depth of field.
Take a look at this link to an online camera simulator and try the different settings and then transfer them to you camera and try it for real.

Hope that helps
