This f/2.8 - f/16 aperture series look at classic landscape scene with a foreground right under the camera to the far distance. It serves several purposes, one of which is to show than even f/16 is woefully inadequate for depth of field for such a scene and that therefore focus stacking is a mandatory skill for the photographer’s toolbox. Indeed, not having that skill is a severe handicap and as of 2017 all the tools are in place to master it.
Accordingly, this aperture series also includes a 5-frame focus stack at f/11 which allows virtually everything to be sharp from right under the camera to the far distance.
