Focus Shift (C) at Somerset House

Focus shift -C-1-A09A9046

——- (this photo above was made accidentally = overlapped with wrong image.)

This was almost the first field test of the Focus-shift photography ( while driving

lens’ AF motor automatically) —– There were several attempt to do the same by

manually rotating the focus before.    But, manual operation creates too much

blur and the success rate was rather low. (So, this is a long standing project.)

Thanks to the lens I used, Canon EFS 18~55mm, I could use the lens from 24mm

to 55mm.   Though, the wider the lens, the image-size changes more, and creating

funny image. (= I’m not happy at all = to counter this problem, I did the Focus shift

together with adjusting the zoom ring to keep image position the same.)

So that, unless I found the remedy, this technique is not matured enough.

And the subject this time was not suite for the technique. — it seems that

Two Element Homemade Lens” does better job.  🙂

(—– on the point of creating painterly, impressionistic image.)
