    Shallow depth of field: how to fake it using Photoshop filters and masks

    With a few creative exceptions, when you’re shooting landscapes you usually want the image to be sharp throughout the whole scene, from the foreground to the background. This requires using a small aperture to get lots of depth of field.

    Using a small aperture and a low sensitivity setting for maximum detail and sharpness means also using a fairly slow shutter speed, making a tripod essential.

    Reason No. 1. Your Photos Aren’t Sharp: Shutter speed too low
    Reason No. 2 Your Photos Aren’t Sharp: Camera shake
    Reason No. 3 Your Photos Aren’t Sharp: Vibrations from touching the camera
    Reason No. 4 Your Photos Aren’t Sharp: Mirror-slap
