One thing that constantly catches me out id the depth of field (DOF) on a Macro lens. When shooting a normal photograph, an aperture of F/13 will probably keep most everything in focus.
In a macro world, that is sadly not the case.
(f/13, 1/125, 100mm, ISO-100. Light from strobes to right and left through diffusing materials)
I mean, I know when it’s close the DOF is tight. But I mean, this tight? If you look at the blown up version, you can see that some of the tacks lose focus between the bottom and the point.
I actually like the photo. I’m just amazed at how shallow the DOF is.
