Depth of Field

Depth of Field
by Michael Doyle

F-stops along the way
Effect the sharpness of the day
Owed all to the depth of field
Is the clarity with which you yield

Layers of composition
Provide the focused position
Behind the telling of story
Framed for the teller's glory

The world's chaos and clutter
Can cause a person to mutter
Until this tool is used
To clean up images for the bemused

Shallow depth gives exclusion
So that a photo has less intrusion
It's not necessarily the notes we play
But the notes we get out of the way

The bigger the hole in the lens
The faster the shutter speed 
How big of a hole just depends
On the ambient lighting and what you need

Yet, soft focus waxes lyrical
Edging at times on the mystical
Popping the magic of eyes
To the touches that tantalize
