In this B&H interview, wedding/portrait photographer Sam Hurd offers five simple tips to help you add a creative element to location portraits in any environment. When shooting with a prime lens and shallow depth of field, mask distracting elements from a scene by holding the side of a basic cell phone in front of your lens, creating a reflection on demand. A six-inch triangular glass prism can be used in the same way to enhance a portrait with dual reflections, or even flares and distortions if you pivot the prism and shoot at an angle. Pick up an unmounted double convex lens to create imperfect reflections and explosions of bokeh in scenes with small bright light sources, especially at night. An old anamorphic lens takes on new life when held in front of your prime, to distort an image in a fun house mirror effect. Undistort the perspective in post using Lightroom or Photoshop, to achieve a cinematic perspective with shallow depth of field. And, in sunset conditions or a harsh light situation, hold a 1 x 1" copper or metal pipe in front of your lens to enable controllable dramatic flare, which Hurd calls a ring of fire.

Join Kelly Mena, of B&H Photo, as she explains the basic principles of depth of field in photography. Mena defines depth of field and explains the distinction between its deep and shallow variations—the former rendering everything from subject to background in sharp focus, the latter rendering the subject in sharp focus and the background soft and out of focus. Mena discusses the variables you can use to control depth of field in your images: aperture, focal length, and camera-to-subject distance. She also explains how you can use the ISO and shutter-speed settings of your camera to determine the optimal aperture for the shot you want to take, which will ultimately determine the character of depth of field in your image. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at B&H InDepth.
