Use fo­cus peak­ing

Digital Photograper - - Techniques -

This handy fea­ture makes it easy to cal­cu­late depth of field

Most mir­ror­less cam­eras and the Live View fea­ture of some DSLRs in­clude a fea­ture called ‘fo­cus peak­ing’. This works by de­tect­ing edges of high con­trast in the scene and high­light­ing them. As well as show­ing ar­eas that are tech­ni­cally in fo­cus, it will also high­light edges that are sharp and there­fore within the depth of field. This is a gen­er­ally re­li­able method and quicker and eas­ier than cal­cu­lat­ing hy­per­fo­cal dis­tance.
