Of all the various elements that one can play with in photography for me the Depth Of Field (DOF) is my favorite.
As one matures in the art the initial aim of being able to see everything crisp and clear changes to allow some elements to be sharp while other are not.
Photography is often described as the art of exclusion, but its not just limited to the frame you choose. Even within the frame that you choose you still have the freedom to decide: to keep some subjects clear while others can be blurred beyond recognition to help you tell your story.
