Hello,

I want to take a landscape shot having infinite depth of field with Spot/centre weighted metering... Please guide..

Say, i have a landscape in front of me with bright lit blue sky (sunny day) with clouds on top, hills with shadows on right side of my frame & on left some river - and ground with trees below.

I want complete depth of field with the right exposure in one single shot. I assign (f4) AE-L/AF-L button to AE Lock only. I am in Auto mode. I switch over to Spot Metering & focus on some brightlit-grass say some 20' away and lock my exposure by pressing AE-L/AF-L button. In this way my exposure gets locked. I keep holding the AE-L/AF-L button and for complete depth of field say my hyperfocul distance is 3' - i auto-focus on ground at 3' and swith over to Manual on lens - frame my shot (holding the AE Lock button) and shoot.

Similarly, in Centre weighted (8mm default) metering, can the same procedure be repeated? I lock the exposure on grass - holding the AE-L/Af-L button, auto-focus 3' away - switch to manual on lens - reframe my shot & shoot.

Is the procedure okay?

I understand, if i do not get a good 'complete' shot - after adjusting +/- ev values - then HDR is the answer.

Please guide...

Thanks & regards

Devrishi
