Thought for the Day: Photography

I just read this tidbit in my free on-line digital photography school tutorial.

“The hyperfocal distance is defined as the focus distance which places the maximum allowable circle of confusion at infinity.”

I definitely have the circle of confusion part down!

  1. LOL Maybe I should just keep myself in the Auto setting.

    I wouldn’t read this stuff if I was you. It just hurts the head. Keep pointing, keep shooting – that’s my motto.

    • Not bad advice. πŸ™‚ I do want to learn more about getting good landscape on this camera with more areas in focus. My close-ups at the flower fields I was very happy with, but so many of the whole field shots were a disappointment and didn’t do justice to the glorious view. But I’m probably going to drive myself a bit nuts. That statement struck me as funny–in a kind of philosophical way!

    in agreement with tootlepedal.. point and shoot.. my aging brain can’t understand the complicated things.

    I o the just point and shoot thing. I don’t know what the hyperfocal thing is anyway.

  5. Some definitions just are not definitions at all!
