Using a Mark3, how do you shift focus between an item in the foreground and the background and change to create different depth of field effects?

Thanks.

Okay, I hope this wasn't a trick question and I just didn't get it, but the simple answer is to turn the focus ring on the camera.

This is why most high end setups use a dedicated focus puller. This person's job is to turn the focus ring on the camera so that the desired parts of the shot are in focus. It is done by marking off the locations where you want the talent to be, and then making appropriate marks on a focus ring on the camera.

Hope this helps.
