VARY FO­CUS AND DEPTH

Digital Photograper - - Techniques -

Land­scape photography is mostly as­so­ci­ated with nar­row aper­tures and deep depth of field. For an en­gag­ing per­spec­tive, limit fo­cus by shoot­ing wide open and ex­per­i­ment­ing with AF point po­si­tion­ing – where in the im­age this is placed will dic­tate how much de­tail is vis­i­ble in each area of the frame. A shal­lower DOF is ac­tu­ally more rep­re­sen­ta­tive of hu­man vi­sion, so can yield or­ganic re­sults.

MID­DLE GROUND A TIGHTER CROP WILL OF­TEN BE NEEDED FOR FO­CUS TO WORK HERE, SINCE BLUR­RING ON THE FORE­GROUND AND BACK­GROUND CAN LOOK UN­COM­FORT­ABLE FORE­GROUND FO­CUS COM­BINED WITH A HIGHER FO­CAL LENGTH, A WIDER PER­SPEC­TIVE AND BLURRED BACK­GROUND ISPOS­SI­BLE IN A SIN­GLE FRAME BACK­GROUND FO­CUS TRY A LOWER CAM­ERA PO­SI­TIONWHEN THE LENS IS FO­CUSED TO­WARDS IN­FIN­ITY TO MAKE THE MOST OF FORE­GROUND DIF­FU­SION
