People Photography Week – Monday

This week will be devoted to people photography – by popular request on twitter. Wildlife photography was the second choice. Over at DPE, my friend Juan Pons is offering a week of wildlife photography tips. So you get the best of both worlds!

I took all the photographs for this week’s blog posts on a workshop in Venice, Italy organized by VSP Workshops.

Monday’s Tip: Create a sense of depth. Use the different elements in a scene to add a sense of depth and dimension in your photographs.

Want maximum depth-of-field? Use a wide-angle lens, set a small aperture (f/11 or f/16) and focus 1/3 into the scene.

Canon 1Ds Mark III
Lens: Canon 24-105mm IS.
