Help with marks
Posted 30 June 2011 - 04:20 PM
I'm looking for some guidance for a shot. Probably an easy answer, I'm a noob and jut talking it out. I have some older Lomo primes, all of which focus past the infinity mark. The markings become just really tiny from 10ft out to infinity.
How do you deal with cars approaching for a wide master? Would I pick my infinity, and then make marks out as far as the lens markings allow, and then try to pull with the speed of the car?
If the action in the scene stays well within the near and far of the DOF tables, are there times when you can get by with not pulling focus?
Thanks in advance,

Otherwise, wrap chart tape on the lens and use a fine tip pen or pencil for your marks, you can get a bit more precise, I use this technique for car commercials and long lens shots a lot.
Hope that helps.
