Depth of field
There is an excellent information source on the website blensartavenue.com, about depth of field. Which is where I have obtained these diagrams.
Depth of field = the ability to decide which areas of your photograph is sharp. Our eyes keep everything in focus from our feet to infinity but we can manipulate our camera settings to decide which areas are in focus or not.
This technique enables us to create emphasis where we want it and to hide elements that may be distracting to our shot.
