Photography “Cheat Sheets”: focal length, crop-factor, DoF and a checklist for sharper photos

In my previous post I’ve shared with you a few “cheat sheets” on the exposure and its “big three” factors you can balance: aperture, shutter speed and ISO.

Today I want to share with you an overview on focal length and sensor size – how they affect your field of view, depth of field, how to use the crop-factor, etc. There is also a slide explaining how you can control the depth of field and a checklist on how to make your photos consistently sharp.

Hope you find these slides helpful and time-saving and will dare to shoot in manual mode! Wishing you lots of photo-pleasure!
