Someone posted some stuff by Hiroshi Sugimoto a while back. He does some great work.
On spraynpray's sharpness thread I was reminded of one of his books that I once saw. It had architecture photography where he had intentionally put his lens's focus at twice the distance it would be for infinity (whatever that means! Someone please explain). Has anyone ever done this? I honestly just laughed when I saw it—does that make me uncultured?
He did it on a view camera (8x10, I think), but does anyone know if there is a way to do this with an SLR? It seems like maybe you could put on a 50mm macro extension tube on a 50mm lens focused at infinity. Is that the kind of thing he did?
edit: I found a link to his website with some of the stuff. http://www.sugimotohiroshi.com/architecture.html
