If You Can Throw a Hat on It ...

I recently attended a workshop on the fundamentals of hyperfocus led by local photography guru Wanda Worthington. We learned how to use a cool app (Depth of Field Calc) to calculate settings to achieve maximum depth of field and an old school rule for setting aperture. If your subject is close enough that you can throw a hat on it use f/16 or f/22, if you have to throw a stone to hit it's f/11 and if it's far enough away that you would need to shoot it with a rifle it's f/8.
