Of course there are exceptions to help better pictures. But usually we often focus for landscape photos from foreground to background. To have the sharpest picture, you need to shut down the border between F9 or F11 small and carefully selected focus point exactly. For those who have the experience, they will know where is the optimum focus point (Hyperfocal), this is the focus point that you can get maximum sharpness focal length and aperture of his choice.

 

Below is a table of the optimum focus point, but you can also use the app calculates the depth of field on your smartphone easily. Or when the foreground in the background too close and you still want to focus, easier way is to focus Collage 2 times by the editing software.

 

Photo is shaky

 

When you use a small aperture also means lower shutter speed. This makes your pictures can easily become blurred, fuzzy if not strong enough hold. Now you’ll need a good tripod and make sure. To minimize vibration, shake when shooting with a tripod, use a soft wire to the camera and press the mode selection “mirror lock-up” (the mirror is flipped up) to be sharpest image.

Miscalculation in time

 

Professional photographers will have to wait all day, all week, all month or even each season to get the perfect lighting for your shots. Quality light strong influence to the color of the photo.

However, it does not always you can also wait for the beautiful day to shoot. Now the most logical solution is that you will put on black and white images, or merge the sky from his other photographs by photo editing software.

Another drawback of Fiilter ND is you can only use in areas where the communication between the upper and lower portion of the filter does not affect or impact at the next photo. However, when shooting subjects included in the airspace as trees, buildings, mountains, using the ND filter will cause the loss of natural images.
