Front to back sharpness
Here’s how it’s done!
Even at F16 with a wide lens, you can struggle to get everything sharp in a photo. If you like getting a foreground object such as a boulder or stream in your shot – the background may get blurry – of the foreground may get blurry… it depends on where you focus.
How about doing 2 shots, 1 focussed on the background and the other on the foreground?
That’s what we did here – the video takes you through how to automatically blend these 2 shots in PHOTOSHOP.
The Source Images
These were taken on a tripod with the exact same settings – just the focus point changed. I used LIVE VIEW on a canon 5D mark 3 – moving the little focus box from the leaves in one shot to the actual waterfall in the other. Hopefully, you can see the focus difference on these 2 shots
This looks pretty much the same as above, but on closer inspection, you see both the back and foreground are sharp
