Often, when I see the first group of images from one of my new photography students, I find that they’ve stopped down most, if not all, of their landscape images to f/22 requiring that I immediately teach them about diffraction and why it’s not wise, and not needed, to stop down a lens so far. Sometimes I receive a bit of pushback when I tell them to try shooting the scene at f/8. Automatically I hear, “What about the depth of field?” Well, in the video below, Steve Perry does an awesome job of explaining what lens diffraction is and why you don’t need, in most situations, to stop down so far.
