Curriculum Corner: Creating Depth of Field

The Guerrilla Guide To Moviemaking, Moviemaking 101/201 Library of Curriculum Materials teaches the fundamentals of moviemaking.

The Moviemaking 101 movie library focuses on the general aspects of moviemaking while the Moviemaking 201 library tutors advanced students on the more technical aspects of moviemaking.

A shallow depth of field is the most desired production value for making an image look more film like. This Moviemaking 201 lesson demonstrates ways to achieve a shallow depth of field when using any camera.
