    I know the subject is a bit boring, but i'm a bit proud of this set of pics (had about 40 pcs of jewelry) since none was edited, just cropped and resized :)

    I agree. The whole piece of work needs to be sharp.

    thanks for the suggestion. i use to stop it down to f/18, but it looked a more pleasant at f/13 with a little blur

    The blur is good for art, not for product shots.

    also no matter what, even at f/18 (anything smaller, my flashes don't light it up enough :greddy:), there is blur. i need to get macro tilt shift lens if i want a macro image with large dof

    A more powerful flash would be a lot cheaper.

    you also have to understand DOF.

    Wit a non macro lens, at the point of focus, 1/3 of the area of focus is in front of that point, and 2/3 is behind, so don't focus on the front object, but a little past it.

    macro lenses are closer to 50/50, but still, don't focus on the front object
