lee filters introduces the lee100 filter holder

LEE Filters has introduced a “next-generation” filter system, the LEE100. The LEE100 is based around a new glass-filled nylon holder, which arrives with a 16% reduction in weight over its predecessor. It attaches to the adaptor ring in the same way as previous versions, and can be secured with a new locking ring that can be set to three different positions: neutral allows for the filter to be removed and rotated, half lock allows for rotation but not removal, and the full lock position prevents the mounted filter from being removed or rotated. Fully compatible with the company’s existing 100mm filters and adaptor rings, the holder differs from its predecessor in that it’s based around a modular design with new filter-holding blocks. Supplied with the holder as standard, these blocks have a tapered…

shoot sharp

The philosophy surrounding sharpness has changed significantly over the history of photography. Modern sensors and lenses are now capable of capturing a previously unobtainable level of detail, which has resulted in a cultural shift amongst photographers and the users of the images we produce. The expectations of quality – a perceived baseline standard level of sharpness – have increased amongst an ever more demanding audience. This means that, where a fundamental skill such as focusing is concerned, it’s now difficult to hide any flaws in the photographer’s technique. Correct focus is imperative, not only because blurred images fail to convey detail and act as a distraction, but also because the viewer of a photograph is led by where the plane of focus falls. If misplaced this can incorrectly indicate to your…

master landscape focusing strategies

Landscapes are some of the most frequently photographed subjects, and many of the popular focusing methods are closely associated with this genre. The static nature of a scenic does lend photographers the benefit of forward planning and time to reshoot; however, the changeable and often sparsely available light, especially during the golden hours, can make precise focus judgement difficult. Furthermore, in a panoramic vista we’re attempting to incorporate a large area in the frame, with objects falling at multiple distances from the camera position, so successfully rendering sharp detail in all areas takes significant skill. The wide nature of a landscape shot also makes assessing accurate focus a challenge. Unless all sections of the composition are carefully checked, it can be easy to overlook a slight misplacement of the focal plane.…

dof preview method

While the hyperfocal distance method may not be the ultimate solution in the modern age of high-resolution cameras, it still offers a rapid and uncomplicated approach. It’s possible to quicken the process even further by excluding the need for referencing numerical values in a physical document or using an app. Make use of the DOF preview button to instantly find the hyperfocal distance. 1 ENTER EXPOSURE SETTINGS Set your aperture to a minimum of f/11, to ensure enough depth of field to cover your scene. Next, manually calculate the appropriate shutter speed or use aperture priority mode to correctly expose the image, with the desired f-stop fixed. 2 USE LIVE VIEW Switch to Live View mode and zoom in to a distant area of the scene, approximately at the horizon line. Next set the…

double-distance focusing

Now a popular alternative to the hyperfocal method, double-distance focusing is not only more capable of rendering detail in the far background, but is also simpler in practice. Instead of referring to a numerical value from a chart, the photographer simply looks for the area of the frame that is closest to the camera, approximately assesses this distance, then focuses the lens at a distance that’s double this value. With the aperture set to between f/11 and f/16 this should provide sufficient depth of field to cover both the foreground and most of the background, offering sharpness more in line with modern sensors and lens quality. Close the aperture incrementally if you require greater DOF, watching out for diffraction effects.…
