Hi. I've always had an interest in macro, but never really tried it. Just did a deal with a forum member (thanks, James!) to acquire a macro lens and I'm amazed at just how shallow DOF can be.
Picture 1 is taken focussing on the dial of the watch
and picture 2 taken from just about the same position is focussed on the bezel
Obviously hand held, and not what i would call good shots in any way but they do illustrate the type of problem I will be having when I get round to plants and bugs....
