Large Depth of Field Shot
Posted 08 January 2006 - 10:33 PM
The landscape was shown first :
And then this character slid in from the left side :
I assume the aperture must have been stopped down all the way in order to allow this depth of field.
Anyone have any info on the type of lense and film that may have been used here?

But also, while it's not easy to tell from the samples, it looks to me as though the background is softer in the second frame than the first. This could be a compression issue, but it's more likely that there was a subtle focus-pull to help with the d-o-f as the charactcame into shot.

Even if this was shot on 50 ASA film back then, remember that in direct sunlight at 24 fps, that's about an f/16.
