A Guide for Using Shallow Depths in Landscape Photography

One of our writers, Christopher O’Donnell, has released an awesome ebook titled The Art of Bokeh: A Guide to Using Shallow Depths in Landscape Photography. It’s a resource written to get landscape photographers to think outside of the standard thinking and widen their aperture to see all perspectives of the environment through their lens. Christopher takes some uniquely amazing landscape photographs and it’s great to see him share a bit more in depth his knowledge to benefit other photographers of all levels who are looking to develop and expand their technique.
