To hone in on the details of #spring, like dewy leaves or tiny insects, you may want to blur out distractions. #DepthOfField is the distance between the nearest and furthest point in your photo that is in focus. A narrow depth of field creates the blurry background found in images with a bokeh effect. There are three key elements that affect depth of field:

1. Aperture: A narrow aperture (larger number) will increase your depth of field, and a wide aperture (smaller number) will decrease it
2. Focal length: The focal length of your lens will also affect your depth of field. As a general rule, the longer your focal length is, the shallower your depth of field will be
3. Sensor size: Smaller sensors, such as those found in point and shoot cameras, have a larger depth of field while larger sensors, such as those found in DSLRs, have smaller ones
4. The distance of the subject: the closer the subject, the shallower the depth of field will be. The further away the subject is, the wider the depth of field

Now that #spring is in full swing, why not take advantage of the abundance of natural light to create flattering #portraits? Grab your camera, invite a friend, and get out in nature to see what you can come up with. #weekend #photography

Ever wondered when #Nikon first became a global #pro choice for #press photographers? As the #NewYorkTimes recounted in its December 1950 article, LIFE photographers reported that "... a Japanese camera and its lenses had proved superior to the German cameras they had been using. That camera is the Nikon." #DavidDouglasDuncan, a #LIFEmagazine photographer, was the first to discover #NIKKOR lenses and the news of their precision travelled quickly. Pros passing through Tokyo would soon make the habit of stocking up on new lenses. One of those was #HankWalker, a photojournalist who invested in a #Nikon S camera body and NIKKOR lenses on his way to cover Korea. Temperatures were freezing, down to -30C, and while other reporters’ cameras ceased to function, Walker’s worked perfectly in the extreme conditions. Those images went on to win him the US camera prize in 1950. #TBT #Nikon100thAnniversary http://iam.nikon.net/c43D

Whenever #Nikon pro photographer #MattiaBonavida shares an image of his local region in #Italy, we usually wish we were there. This one is no exception. Enjoy your #MidweekMomentOfPeace from #LakeBraies. 😄

This image shows the #underwater action in the 4x200 metre #freestyle race between #MissyFranklin of #USA, #AliceMizzau of #Italy, and #BronteBarratt of #Australia during the #FINA #WorldSwimmingChampionships in #Kazan in #Russia. It was captured by #NikonEuropeanAmbassador #JoelMarklund, who used diving equipment to get this unusual angle from beneath the swimmers.

Spring is a great time to discover macro photography: the sun is shining, the insects are coming back out, and dew is collecting on leaves. On Mondays for the next few weeks we'll be sharing tips for getting started with #AlbertoGhizziPanizza: a photographer whose skills in this genre have caught our attention. His first tip is to choose a good lens with a 1:1 reproduction ratio, and suggests that a great one to start with is the AF-S DX #MICRO-#NIKKOR 40MM F/2.8G. #MacroMonday #macro #photography #tips.

This #NikonDf image by #SeanBatten has everything we love in modern #architecturalphotography: clean lines, sharp framing and beautiful reflections. We hope it inspires you to try your hand at capturing a different view of your local #architecture this weekend. See more of Sean's work at www.flickr.com/photos/seanbatten.
