Hi everyone - this is a general inquiry in case someone has ideas about how photograph hands. A friend who is an osteopath is setting up a website and asked me to photograph her hands while she is engaged in a "hold" during a treatment.
I have Googled ...... and most of the ideas are about creative hand photography, whereas this is for a specific purpose. I'm guessing I need to go for good depth of field, so shoot about f/8 or maybe slightly more. One suggestion was to use a 50mm lens which I do have. I also wondered about the Tamron 90 macro, which I haven't used much, but depth of field is much shallower from memory.
Her table is right by a window, so I'm hoping we might be able to turn it around to suit the shots/hand position, and I do have a flash, so guess I could bounce that off the ceiling from the camera. No external triggers etc yet. I'm assuming I need to watch for shadows - what other pointers/ideas can people give?
