John Mitchell Posted July 15, 2015 Share Posted July 15, 2015 A question for insect experts, I took some selective focus macro shots of bees today, something I don't do very often, and I'm wondering what Alamy QC is looking for with images like these. I was using a stabilized lens (with some new dedicated extension rings) and f/5.6 because I wanted to keep the shutter speeds high (no tripod) and blur the background somewhat. I managed to get the eye(s), part of the striped back, and closest wing to the lens in focus. Will this likely keep QC happy? Or do they expect most/all of the insect to be in focus? The images look fine to me, but then I'm not a macro photographer. Thanks. P.S. I was using a mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor, so the DoF is probably greater than with some other cameras -- e.g full frame. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
