Pulling focus definition

Hello there.

In several threads i came across the term “pulling focus”. But so far I haven’t found an explanation for what this is. Where are the differences to “pushing focus”?
Is it only “pushing focus” = AF at near work and “pulling focus” = AF in the distance?


Yeah, you’ve got it right.

The overall idea is that you push your focus away from you over time up close and draw in (pull) focus for distance. Eventually these will meat up and you have your natural eyesight back.
