Even though I use a DSLR to take pictures, I still don't get the depth of field I like.
So, I've been experimenting with a program called Helicon Focus to do what is called focus stacking. You take a series of photos with different focuses, and the program combines them to give a greater sense of depth.
Some examples, each is made up of four pictures.
The program was $30 for a one year license, which is a lot cheaper than a new lens.
I've also added some dummy streetlights to my street. Painted the typical Chicago green. I'm also trying to figure out a way to add trash/garbage to my street scene. I haven't found a good solution yet.
