Hello all,

I am trying to get all the pedals of this flower in focus. I know it's under exposed as well, but the fous issue is what I am after. Is focus stacking the only way to accomplish this? Here is the exif data.

Hi leeport, I am not sure why you were using an av of 2.8, if you were doing macro then thats fine as you only get a narrow depth of field, just try using a higher f/stop and see for yourself what happens, also depends on camera to subject distance as well, if you were able to move in more and focused then that might have helped as well. Although I am guessing from the time you took the picture 20.46 then you were losing light?

Use different focus points and then do some focus stacking.

u8myufo, yes, I was trying to get some good bokeh using f 2.8. I was also trying to use my 17-55 for somewhat of a macro, as I dont have one.

Get as close physically as the lens will allow, which should block out most of the background, and even stopped down some you should get decent background blur with what little of the background you'll get.

I like the way this one is focused, though. But that's just my opinion.

Looking for tips, comments, critique, and in general help! :D
