Depth of field can be a somewhat confusing topic to get to grips with if you’re new to photography. That is to say, it’s easy to see what depth of field is, but it can be tricky to understand what elements can cause it to change, whether intentionally or by accident. In this video, photographer Kellan Reck takes a look at depth of field and explains the variables that can affect your depth of field.
Camera transitions are part and parcel of video editing. At some point, you’re just going to have to cut from one shot to another. But there are many different ways you can make this cut. It can be as simple as it sounds – a straight cut – but you can also make it more interesting with sliding transitions, fades, blurs, blooms and all sorts of things.
In this video from filmmaker Kellan Reck, we see six simple in-camera transitions you can use in your videos. Some are best suited to things like vlogs, but you can apply them to all kinds of video content depending on the theme and mood you wish to convey.
