My wife just learned about the hyperfocal point last week from her online class and she took some pictures using this technique.

We are a bit confused as to how it works in applications, especially on landscape photos in which there is no definite focal piece.

What we did for her class, was find what the closest area that we wanted in focus from the lens, and backed into the hyperfocal distance. At that point we guesstimated the distance to the hyperfocal distance as best we could, and attempted to focus on that spot. It seems to have worked well.

We noticed that the picture did come out pretty clear, even using f8. I suppose we are just not real comfortable with using this technique as it is still a bit confusing to us.

We understand the concept clearly, it is just the application of it that is a bit shaky for us at this point. I feel that practicing using this technique, as with just about anything, will help better our understanding.

Thank you for your response. We will continue to work on this technique.
