A question. I know on any lens, if you want to increase the DOF, a smaller aperture is the answer. Does that apply also to Macro lenses?, my creative side says yes, but my analytical side is saying no...

I bet she's not keen on the snow...lol

The answer is "to a certain degree" it does. The closer you get with a lens to the subject, the shallower the depth of field gets.
With a macro lens you have to choose where you want the sharp focus to be and target that either by manually focusing or using liveview.
You should try and keep what you want focused on as flat a plane as possible ie, your lens parallel to the item.

You can do focus stacking like Brian V does on the macro forum, but I suggest you get to know your lens first before trying something like that.

I adore my 100mm macro lens and use it all the time as a prime too...best piece of camera equipment I've bought so far.

Oh yes.. she is a big fan of the snow....(NOT).. in reality she does not mind the snow that much it is the cold that gets her..

I have investigated focus stacking. neat technique and I do agree, more experience with lens before attempting that..

I love my 105.. it is interesting how the smallest things now become subjects.. It makes a great mid-range portrait lens too.. I think my two favourite lenses are my 150-500 and my 105. But, don't get me wrong.. all my other lenses fit their purpose..

Day 3.

Well today was a nice day, sun was shining although a bit cold (so no walking around too much with the camera) I did get my shot for the day. This is a picture of the old firehall that was renovated and turned into a small theater. It is amazing, with this project, I am always thinking about what to shoot, and today, I thought wait a minute what about the old firehall.

The nice things about sunny days in winter is the light is incredible, however, they also tend to be the coldest.

The second shot, I took last night inspired by my macro still on my camera. It is a macro fo a jade sculpture that my wife brought for me from China. I turned it into a BW image, because honestly the light in my living room is not the best.

Hope you all enjoy.

We don't get many blue skies in winter here...mostly grey/white skies.
Your day looks lovely.

Looks like a pretty sculpture.

Is is an incredible sculpture, when I get my 'room' a little better set up I will take some colour photos. am trying to figure out how to make a lightbox (or purchase one) that will not break the bank and is easy to move out of the way.
