I haven’t been able to do any photography this past week. I changed cars a couple of weeks back and the transaction hasn’t exactly gone smoothly shall we say. But whilst I’ve been sorting out a few of the lose ends, I’ve also been processing my recent shots with the Panasonic G9, ready for stock submission.

Here’s an example of one that I like the look of but where I got the point of focus wrong. I seemed to keep doing this before I found I was causing the problem by catching the back of the camera screen and moving it.

The Cornish Coast at Lands End, Panasonic G9

I shot this with the Panasonic G9 and Leica 12-60 lens at 15mm. It was a handheld exposure of 1/640” at f/9.0 and ISO200. Despite the small aperture of f/9.0, there isn’t enough depth of field because the point of focus is wrong.

Here’s a section of the image at 100% magnification. You can see the foreground flowers are in sharp focus but then there isn’t enough depth of field to keep the rocks and sea in the background acceptably sharp. The focus point is just too close to the camera.
