This is a common technique used in most landscape photography.
You will need:
- a camera that allows you to manually adjust settings

Step 1: Calculating Hyperfocal Distance
*The circle of confusion is just that: confusing. There is much debate over the "proper" circle of confusion among different cameras and lenses, listed on www.dofmaster.com, including a circle of confusion calculator, which you can view by clicking the link below.
Once the hyperfocal distance is calculated, the depth of field will extend from half the hyperfocal distance to infinity, making the whole image focused, producing a great depth of field.
The second image is a more visual example of the equation, and much easier to understand.
