How do I take a photo with much-everything in focus using hyperfocusing technique, with Wide/Spot AF and Multi-Segment metering? Based on the hyperfocal distance calculator, I get a hyperfocal distance of 5m (hypothetical). Using the focus-lock method, I focus lock on an object at 5m, and then recompose the frame. However, exposure is also locked when I do a focus lock at 5m. The recomposed frame usually does not have the ideal exposure that I want, since it is based on the exposure locked at 5m, which could be too bright or too dark with my intended composition.
Is there a workaround or a better way to achieve this?
Using Sony A55 with SAL18250.
