    Hi all,

    Here is a macro shot of my Mum's watch in Jimmy Chung's restaurant in Edinburgh. Taken with a Sony W-50 at the 'P' setting with the colour B&W.

    Some more DOF to show the hands would be nice

    Can you get that much DOF with a macro lens? I thought that was one of the disadvantages of having a true macro.

    Depth of Field...and if that's doesn't mean much it refers to the amount of depth you have in focus.

    A greater DOF can be accomplished by decreasing aperture and decreasing (slowing) shutter speed (or decreasing iso...but I think people generally accomodate changes in aperture with changes in shutter speed.).

    I originally said increase shutter speed...what I meant was increase the amount of time the sensor is exposed. Oh well!

    yeah just close your aperture a little bit. So instead of f/2.8 or something make it about f/8 or larger (depending on the lighting conditions; a smaller aperture requires a longer shutter speed)

    Almost forgot about this thread, sorry.:lol:

    The picture was taken with a compact so I can't decrease the aperature, but I will try to get another picture of said watch when I get my shiny new EOS 350 in a couple of weeks.

    Cheers,

    Blair
