Using Selective Focus To Create Compelling Portraits
For a concept as fundamental as selective focus, it is a tool photographers will continue to improve throughout their entire careers and one in which no app or machine exists to tell us exactly how to do it.
Sure, it’s easy enough to look at a potential photo and say, I want the subject’s eyes to be the main point of interest in this photo, I have to make sure the eyes are in focus. But then more questions start surfacing. Questions like, what else should be in focus? And, how do I make everything else actually fall out of focus or stay in focus? Suddenly, what seemed so rudimentary at first, is actually kinda overwhelming.
