Expert’s Test: How aperture settings affect the quality of the image
Diffraction is something that affects all of us in photography. Ever notice when shooting a subject and that stopping down your lens to get more depth-of-field the image starts to lose sharpness and contrast?
Well in this video, jewelry and luxury product photography expert Vadim Chiline will explain the underlying physics of what’s going on, and finally real in-studio examples using a Canon 5D Mark III camera system.
In the follow-up Part 2 video coming later this month, he will show you his preferred method to get the ultimate sharp images using focus stacking through Helicon focus. He will go over the various algorithms and settings that are part of this wonderful software package and why focus stacking is the solution to diffraction.
