How do Depth of Field and Circle of Confusion relate to each other?
This is an advanced subject. You should have completed lessons DP-111C and DP-112C before trying to apply the information contained in this blog post.
The size of the camera sensor, the focal length of the lens, aperture size or f stop and the distance from the camera to the focus point all have an impact on the available Depth of Field (DOF). All of these issues work together to either create a broad flat DOF curve or a steep DOF curve.
