lighting wise, these are good.
they just need a little more DOF.
dial in a smaller aperture to get more of the subject in focus.
you may have to adjust the flash a bit to compensate.
a lot of that is just trial and error getting placement and intensity where you want it.
Hey, thank you for the help. My aperture was f20 but I was also using a 85mm on a full frame. I have also never used a flash before in my life. To make the scene brighter I just adjusted the flash to +1.0 in order to be able to get a smaller f stop. Is that correct or is there a better way.
surprising. doesnt look like much DOF for f/20, even on a FF camera.
are you sure it wasnt f/2?
1 and 3 in particular just scream small aperture shallow DOF.
well, if it is f/20, im at a loss short of using a longer lens from further back.
Pretty good flash work! I like frogs. At this distance, even f/20 does not yield much depth of field...that's really a big issue with 3-D subjects at close ranger and high image magnification: the DOF zone is very,very small. But you did well.
