Hey gang, it's time to walk the thin line of large F-stops and shallow depth of field to make the subject really pop out of the scene. This tutorial shows you how to take some not so good looking backgrounds and turn them into a beautiful setting for a bridal portrait. I'll also show many examples as to how focal length together with aperture changes the final image for better or worse and how to get the best result on your next shoot. Enjoy! -David

Technique Tuesday - I Can't See The Forest For All The Trees
Today's post is very important for all portrait and wedding photographers out there. Too often a small F-stop ruins or becomes an obstacle for what could instead have developed into a beautiful image of the subject. We sometimes are too concerned with getting the subject in focus, which is indeed important, and then in effect many times put our backgrounds into too sharp of focus.
