Photography: Close-up, low light depth of field conundrum

LunchTestFocus170228While eating lunch today I was tinkering with my Lumix GX8 camera to play with depth-of-field and sandwiching images (see Photoshop technique in old post). In a low light macro situation there isn’t a way to keep items in front and back sharp enough to read … so in some cases, sandwiching two images is the only option. Take a look a test 15" away in the back and the Activia text in the fore-ground … about 6" away – both are legible due to sandwiching two images … now to learn to do this all inside the camera! .


Desultory - des-uhl-tawr-ee, -tohr-ee

  1. lacking in consistency, constancy, or visible order, disconnected; fitful: desultory conversation.
  2. digressing from or unconnected with the main subject; random: a desultory remark.
