Minnie, as regards the 60mm. It took me a while to get the hang of it. Especially translating the settings from meters to inches. Once I had it kind of in my head, I began enjoying using the lens. One thing though I only use auto focus on the normal setting. Once I click to the middle setting or go to 1 to 1 it is manual focus. Other wise it just spins its wheels so to speak.

Chuck, as I mentioned before I had seen a video of the process and my camera club has a monthly challenge which this month was shallow depth of field. The rest as they say is history. Now I am always on the lookout for interesting material to use.

Was experimenting and had seen a video showing the technique and thought I would give it a try.Stars.jpg
Mike, This is multidimensional. I soft focused on the soft background, not on one of the globes, sort of in between the globes, and the globes jumped out at me. More please. If you used M&Ms, then the whole setup would be edible. Matt

Matt did you try it? Would like to see your results. Can't do M&Ms, diabetic.

No way, Mike. Way, way beyond my abilities. BTW, I had an app on my iPhone years ago, marble photos, and I took some photos that are stored away in my archives. I will search later today and post if I can find them. Matt

This looks like a fun project and a great way to really understand a macro lens. Thank you for sharing! S-
