Landscapes and Landmarks


One of the major dilemmas most photographers face when making pictures of an interesting landscape or monument is where to focus. Often, there is no single point of interest in the frame and so, it is important that the entire frame be equally sharp. In such a situation, using a small aperture along with the hyperfocal distance should work. Hyperfocal distance is a point where, if the lens is focused at a particular distance, everything from half that distance all the way to infinity will be in focus, giving you a perfectly sharp frame.
