    Wildlife Photography Mistakes: 07 Depth of field too shallow

    How to set up your camera to shoot macro photography with shallow depth of field: aperture

    Because you need to use a fast shutter speed to freeze movement and a long telephoto lens to frame your subject tightly you are likely to have to use a wide aperture and you may find that depth of field is very restricted.

    This can mean that only the subject’s face is sharp and its body is soft. While this may be effective in some cases, in others it just doesn’t work.

    If you need to close down the aperture to get greater depth of field you’ll have to do push-up sensitivity setting that you’re using.

    Naturally you want to keep this as low as possible to avoid the introduction of noise, but sometimes there’s just no avoiding it.

    Another option, of course, is to return when the light is better allowing a smaller aperture and fast shutter speed to be used.
