When you want to maximise depth of field, you need to know how to find and use your lens’s optimal focal point—the hyperfocal distance. In this tutorial you’ll learn why hyperfocal distance still matters in the age of digital, how to find the hyperfocal distance, and how this method of focusing works in the real world.
Editor’s Note: In our article for International Women’s Day, we looked at the contributions women have made to photography and how they’ve shaped photography for their own goals. Inspired by the women we profiled, we’re continuing with the theme and publishing profiles of women in photography.
