    I was just playing around with some settings on my camera and reading over the manual. I was testing different shutter speeds and what not trying to get a crisp macro shot. This is as clear as I could get, I just want to hear some suggestions.....untill my copy of brian petersons understanding exposure gets here.:D


    What should I do?

    i'm guesing the link got fixed!

    the bullet looks to be sharp, and i don't know how new you are, so don't be offended if you already know this ;) But, the closer you get to something with the same given aperture the distance of acceptable focus is lessened, if you open your aperature more the same happens. if you wanted everything in focus then you would need one of the following, or a combination:

    1. more light, so you can close your aperature more to get the shot with everything in focus

    2.a tripod, close the aperture down, and the tripod will compensate for the shooters shakiness (camera shooter ;) ) and make everything overall more sharp. or in focus rather.


    3.higher iso setting and a smaller aperture (make it a higher number) so you can keep your shutter speed fast enough to not show motion.

    if i slipped up on what i said in there i'm sure someone will correct, but i re-read and think i said it all right. good luck!

    Good photo, but the marble surface that the bullets are on is extremely distracting. Try shooting on a white surface, like the inside of a cooler.

    In case you don't know what a cooler is:
