Macro fun

posted on 08:07 AM on Tuesday 02 April 2013

Some random macro shots of things on my table. Trying to improve my focusing and macro settings especially getting a sense of the depth of field. Lighting is rather important at the small apertures that is needed for macro. Seems that my inability to focus well was a combination of large aperture resulting in small DOF and low ambient lighting. Having a smaller aperture does make the focusing much easier at the expense of needing a lot more light. So it seems that a macro ring light is rather required in the field.
