Harold Merklinger
on Depth of Field

If you arrived at this page by a direct link, it will be helpful for background information if you read my article, More on Depth of Field, before reading the Merklinger articles. For more information, read my article on Depth of Field using hyperfocal distance charts.

These articles appeared in Shutterbug magazine and provide a different take on depth of field from the approach taken in  hyperfocal distance charts. Click on the links to download the pdf files. This is essential reading if making the most of depth of field is important to you.
