A shallow depth of field is normal in macro photography. Something to do with physics (I'm a Geordie so obviously can't explain why).

A way around it is to use a tripod and take multiple exposures with your focus in different points and the magic of photoshop will combine the images to give you one with a greater depth of field.

You've done a decent job though.
I re-read your post as I was looking at an article on Focus Stacking and understand what you were talking about now. I am looking at a Nikon D850 which has this feature, just have to talk nice to the wife now. :rolleyes:

All DSLRs can focus stack. Even the cheapest. Just position your camera on a tripod, adjust your focus so that you're focusing on the near part of your image, and 'click'.

Then move the focus point a little further into your image 'click'.

Rinse and repeat 3, 4 or maybe even 5 times.

Stack them in photoshop.

My £60 Canon 450D could do it.

My inner Geordie struck last night; I googled the low tide timings and sunset and saw that they both coincided at 2130 hrs.

So I headed off down to Beachley to try some time lapse photography with my go pro. There's a tidal island at Beachley so I picked my way carefully over the seaweed, saw the tide wasn't fully out, so set up my go pro on a small tripod on a rock by the ebbing tide and left it there to take photos with my DSLR.

About half an hour later I see the water right upto my go pro so had to walk into the knee-deep water to retrieve it. To make matters worse, when I got home I tried to delete the JPEG files and keep just the RAW and this somehow corrupted the time lapse images I took, so I had nothing to gain from wet feet and a bollocking from the missis.

I must've read the tide-timings wrong.

Got these on the main camera though:

Yes that would have to be done in controlled conditions were the subject is still. In the field with the wind etc. things are a bit different. Some cameras I think you can set say 11 focus points and it shots all 11 points on Silent mode or maybe a mirrorless camera electric shutter. Anywho its on the back burner for now.

Am sure that some would find this exciting, I think it looks shite.
Especially on single track roads in the Highlands rather than across a US desert highway.

Just about to walk these 3 hooligans. The Yorkie we inherited when MiL went into care, the Cockerpoo is totally insane and the Lab is Bomber, the pub dog from The Dambusters Inn in Scampton village.
