- Took too many lenses. Most used - 20-70mm zoom with filters and 16-25mm zoom (permanent shade doesn’t allow for easy filter attachment)

- Hyperfocal distance - focus on something about 1/3 distance into the scene, the depth of field will extend both in front of and behind your point of focus
- Focus Stacking - 3 pics of same area, focus one on foreground, one on middle ground, one on background - stack in Photoshop
- Bracketing - merge images to create pic with creative lighting
- Keep aperture small (f/8 or f/11)
