Shallow Depth of Field

Open Rating Results
This contest is created and judged by a member of the Photocrowd community. Want to run your own? Find out more >

Enter your photos having a shallow depth of field, where the background is blurred and the subject is perfectly in focus, to make it stand out. You can achieve this by using a telephoto lens, by moving your camera closer to your subject, using a wider lens aperture or a combination of all of these techniques. Dependent on how much blurring you want in the background, you can control these parameters accordingly. The subject can be anything you choose.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
