This is a technique that is not at all difficult and can produce fascinating images.

When To Be Open And When To Be Closed?

In photography the terms to be ‘open’ or to be ‘closed’, don’t refer to a photographer’s personality! What these terms refer to are the settings the photographer uses on a camera when taking the photo. But to be more specific, these terms refer to the setting of the lens, its aperture. Understanding this is the key to getting better results when taking your next photo.


A wide open aperture of f/2 has drawn the viewer’s attention to the main subject and made the background appear out of focus. This is the use of a shallow depth of field, often used in portrait photography.
