Adding depth of field

When you’re shooting a photo, you often have to choose to focus either the background or the foreground. If you want the entire image to be in focus, take two photos—one with the background in focus and one with the foreground in focus—and then merge the two in Photoshop.

Because you’ll need to align the images exactly, it’s helpful to use a tripod to keep the camera steady. Even with a handheld camera, though, you can get some amazing results. You’ll add depth of field to an image of a wine glass in front of a beach.
