Step By Step #2: Simulating a Shallow Depth of Field by John Clark

There could be a variety of reasons why you might want to simulate a shallow depth of field (DOF) during post-processing. For example, you captured a great composition but in the excitement of the moment chose too wide an aperture. There is simply too much in focus! 

Another example would be someone like me who shoots with a Micro Four Thirds system. The small sensor in the camera gives a much wider depth of field compared to a full frame camera, and even stopping down can, on occasion, still create more DOF than the creative vision may call for. 

In this Step by Step tutorial I will show you how to use ON1 Photo RAW 2019 to make up in post-processing the shallow depth of field that you were unable to capture in the field.

As the photographer, when we push the shutter we know exactly what the subject is. But there can be times when we need to help the viewer focus on precisely the area we want them to.

Of course, there are a variety of post-processing tricks that can be utilized for this. I recently created a tutorial on how desaturating part of the image can be an effective tactic to help pull attention away from areas of the image.

Though ON1 Photo RAW 2018 was the program I used for editing this tutorial, the basic process and steps should work in Lightroom®, Affinity and other software.

This tutorial was originally posted in the ON1 Plus user section of their web site, and it is with thanks that they have allowed me to share this downloadable step-by-step tutorial with you.
