Shoot sharper land­scapes

Photo Plus - - 50 Canon Tips -

Small aper­tures such as f/16 and f/22 in­crease the depth of field, or the amount of front-to-back sharp­ness. Per­fect for land­scapes, you might think. The trade-off is that they lead to softer pic­tures due to the ef­fects of dif­frac­tion (where the light rays are bent out of shape as they pass through the small hole). For sharper scenic shots, it’s worth sac­ri­fic­ing a lit­tle depth of field and us­ing an aper­ture around f/11 for edge-to-edge sharp­ness across the en­tire frame.
