thought I would try a few more. I am having problems when the item has a lot of depth and the lens only focuses on one part and the rest is out of focus. Any suggestions!!!! thanks...

To get depth of field on Macros, you need to use higher F-stops. Easiest way is to use Aperture Priority (I usually use minimum of f 8.0 ; usually much higher).

Of course higher f stops mean slower shutter speeds, so you need to compensate with more light and/or a tripod.

Nice work...I really find the first one very visually interesting. Were you at 12x? You can zoom out a bit on these and still get a good close up and crop in a bit. ? No expert here. lol

Nice shots Annie and as the others said about the only to get more DOF is higher f stops and zooming out some. Sometimes there is just nothing you can do.

thanks for the comments. I was using manual as I am not sure how you can focus if you are in Aperature Priority. do you use the manual focus ring on this setting?
