Depth of Field
Depth of Field is an awkward phrase used to label how much of an image, front to back, is in focus. The physics of optics dictates how much of the subject the lens can keep in focus at each different f-stop. For example, f/4 provides shallower depth of field (less of the image area is sharp from front to back) than does f/32. As the lens is stopped down, more and more of the image area is brought into focus.
