3. FOCUS EFFICIENTLY
The amount of scene that you have in focus can differ from camera to camera. A crop sensor camera, for instance, will have a greater depth of field than a full frame camera at the same aperture setting. It’s essential that you understand your camera.
Danson suggests that when using a wide angle, instead of focusing on the hyperfocal distance to have your entire scene in acceptable focus, just focus on the distant landscape. If you miss out on exact hyperfocal distance even by a bit, your depth of field can reduce significantly. This will lead to the distant landscape being out of focus. So stop stressing out and focus directly on the distant landscape at “infinity.”
4. SIMPLIFY YOUR IMAGE
“It’s what you cut out of the photos that is more important than what you put into the photos.”
By simplifying your composition and including only things that actually make sense, your images turn out to be much more comprehensible. Identify and exclude the distracting elements in the composition and just focus on the core, interesting subject. If you can, zoom in and try filling the frame.
