Fujifilm GF 32-64mm f/4 @32mm Focus Stack: Barroom Interior

Fujifilm GF 32-64mm f/4 R LM WR

Even at f/11 at 32mm, depth of field is very limited, a confounding issue with medium format, since diffraction rapidly kills image quality past f/11. Hence focus stacking is highly relevant for landscape shooting or any shooting where one wishes for the image to retain reasonably good contrast (which f/16 would destroy from diffraction) and yet much more depth of field is needed than a single shot can provide.

Here I wanted to see what I could do to make a near-to-far composition in a static interior. This is a challenge that an interior photographer might encounter, but it should be obvious that this layout mimics many a landscape scene as well. Here, even f/16 would be far from adequate for depth of field (with bad consequences for overall image quality), so stacking is the only option. A tilt-shift lens would not help given the 3D projections within the scene. Only focus stacking can solve the challenge here.

A 3-frame stack was used, which is still easy to work with, particularly for a non-moving subject, and no wind to make a mess via overlapping grass/leaves/etc. The first frame is focused on the leading edge of the table (close distance), the 2nd frame on the chair on the dining table (middle distance), the 3rd on the far wall.
