I wanted to practice shooting with the Scheimpflug effect of tilting the front standard of my Toyo VX-125 film camera so that the plane of focus is horizontal with the ground. I tilted the front quite a bit and if I remember correctly I shot this photo at about F22. It resulted in both my near subject – the cactus – and my far subject – the trees – both being in focus. Not an earth-shattering image by any means, but once again on this trip in our Jeep Wrangler Rubicon to Arizona, all the photos were for me, not for a publication or competition or anyone else.
