Use Nikon Z 5’s depth of field synthesis function: play with model photography!

If you think the Nikon Z 5 is just a very ordinary entry-level full frame micro single camera, you are wrong. I have been looking forward to it since the date of its release. It is not only a lens that can use Nikon’s z-notch, but also has a highly praised dual SD card slot. In addition, it still retains a very convenient and practical function — focus change shooting. Maybe some friends don’t understand what this function is and how to use it? As a model enthusiast, I would like to share with you all about this feature. < / P > < p > first of all, the function of “focus change shooting” is not mysterious. It first appeared on Nikon’s popular SLR camera d850. Its function is to automatically and continuously take many photos with different focus. < / P > < p > to enable this function, you just need to turn on Nikon Z 5, press menu, enter the photo capture menu, and turn on “focus change shooting”. You’ll see the interface above. How to control the shooting distance? I think, try to use a longer focal length. If you don’t use a macro lens, don’t get too close because it will make the camera unable to focus at the nearest distance. I use Nikon Z 5 + Z 24-70mm f / 2.8s, and set the focal length to be 50mm. < / P > < p > let’s take a look at the effect of ordinary large aperture shooting. Because I want to use f2.8 to shoot, create a beautiful background virtual atmosphere. But in this case, the model can only have the focus part clear, and the other parts are all virtualized, which is not the effect I want. < / P > < p > what effect do I want? Of course, the focus should be real, all the places should be real! But the left hand closest to the camera can be empty, creating a sense of hierarchy. So we can use the focal length change to shoot a wave. In terms of setting, the setting of the number of pictures is about 50, but it doesn’t matter if I shoot 100. It depends on the actual situation. There are 10 levels to choose between narrow and wide focal length. If the distance between each focus is very close, then choose the narrowest. I choose 1 here. The shooting interval, if it’s just still life, is set to 0. The first composition exposure should be locked. In case of light and shadow changes during the shooting process, the first one shall prevail. Silent shooting depends on what you like. When you’re done, just click to start. < / P > < p > although I chose to shoot 100 photos, only 38 were actually used. Then copy these photos to the computer and open them with the relevant software. < / P > < p > finished product drawing, the result is that all the clear places are clear. And it is seamless transition, the quality of the picture is very delicate. Generally speaking, the shooting process is finished. But I want to beautify it a little bit. So we have the final product drawing below. In short, it gives the photographer more control over the depth of field. In the case of maintaining a certain aperture atmosphere, the subject can still be virtualized. In fact, this method is not only suitable for model shooting, many photographers also like to use it to take scenery, to make the foreground and background clear together. So why do I like Nikon Z 5, because it has my favorite features! gather and watch! Huawei P40 Pro evaluation: excellent mobile phone photography elegant design, do you like it?
