'Everybody has probably seen photographs in which every element from foreground to background is in sharp focus, and other pictures in which only the subject is in sharp focus while everything else is blurry. The first picture is said to have more depth of field than the latter, which has shallow depth of field. For those that don't know, depth of field, or DOF, is how deep the area in focus is, when you focus on a given subject. It's a very powerful artistic tool.'
