Here is a video that I did showing exactly how depth of field works in your camera. This is not a long video, but the explanation of how depth of field works, is all on this video:

Now, from this video two photos were taken. One with the f-stop set at F3.5, and the other one at f-22. Let’s look at the results:

This photo taken with an 18mm lens (18-55 mm lens) and shot at an F-stop of 3.5. The video said it was taken at F5.6, but that was incorrect.
Same photo taken as before, but shot with the exact same lens, as depicted in the video, but this time the aperture was set at F22. Notice how many more flowers are in focus, both in the foreground and the background.

Hope this helps you to understand how depth of field works. If you have any questions, feel free to comment below.
