I’m still working with my new macro lens and depth-of-field. I’ve found that even when I use a small aperture, the depth-of-field is still fairly shallow with the macro lens. And with a large aperture, the depth-of-field is miniscule. And it changes quite a bit just moving a few inches from the subject.
All of these photos were taken on a some sort of pine bush in our front yard. It’s an interesting bush – it has pinecones, little purple things that I think are pine cone wannabes, and tiny pine cone clusters with pine needles growing out of them. Someone out there may know what kind of bush this is.
We have more thinks growing in the yard now so I will have lots of opportunities to do more playing around with the macro lens.
