How do you deal with DOF when the various things in the picture are at different distances...go to Aperture mode and dial in a higher F-stop? Donna
I'm by no means an expert but I have learned a lot from others here. On the first photo I don't think you can get the entire object in focus with the 250 in place. However, there are a couple thing you could do.
  • Use aperture priority and close it down all the way, then limit zoom to as little as zoom as possible. You will then need to crop the photo to get the framing you want. [/*]
  • Secondly you can take several pics with the in focus section moving from closest to farthest point then use a special program (forget the name) to combine them into one deep DOF image.[/*]
Other then these two things you may just want to consider a macro lens with less power to complement your 250. I per sonly like to have things both in focus and out of focus in macro shots. Your first image is a good example. The dew drops are the subject, get them in focus and don't worry about the rest. But that is just my opinion.

Great shots Donna! You've really got the 250 down. I use the halico filter and love it. Especially the Retouching part. I havn't used Focus yet but I'm sure it's a great program..........................................D on

Don't know how I missed this post, Donna. Real good macros, especially the second one.
