Hi all, merry Christmas!
Ive set up this shot (link below) where I want to focus on the glass in the foreground and when the glass is lifted the focus changes to the text on a card behind using the instant focus feature on the HV30
Ive got the HV30 set to aperture priority in HDV mode with an f-stop of 2.0 and im zoomed in about halfway with the camera about 1.5 feet away from the glass. The result (link below) so far is ok-ish but the text is still not fully focused imo. I like the lighting so do not want to make the scene any brighter either.
Is there any way I can improve the depth of field and make the focus sharper. I want to depth of field as shallow as possible so that you cant read the card at all until the glass is moved.
PS. I think the Rorschach ink blot is not seperated form the text enough, I may need to alter this and re-print it. This is not helping the focus imo.
