I'm sure an easy answer to an easy question for some, but I'm confused.
I'm just experimenting with macro for the first time and took some close ups of a really striking rose. I placed it on the site yesterday and quite rightly received the comment that the DOF is too shallow.
I agree... but I set the camera to macro and it set the aperture. I've been thinking about this today and am wondering how to get around it. I used my zoom lens with macro setting and macro dialled in on the camera. To get the deeper DOF should I have set the lens to macro and manually set the aperture in another mode?
In my naivety I presumed both needed to be set to macro but the more I think about this the more I feel it's wrong...
If the light wasn't so damn poor now (!) I would go and try again with different settings but thought I would ask the question here for now...
Also please excuse the typo on the frame - just noticed..!
