We will explore how the depth of field behaves differently at a macro level and the best focus point to use to get as much of the flower in focus as possible.

James has the patience of a saint. It was so nice to take photos under instruction of settings to go back and see what caused each change. A lot of information which can feel a little overwhelming at times. But James is great and goes with the flow and questions. We weren't made to feel incompetent. Beautiful location loved it and will return.
