    Please ask Ben to respond…
    I seen one of your YouTube videos and I’m a novice photographer. Right now I’m taking photos (for a school project) of a flat green circuit board (how I found your video). I have a Canon EOS Rebel T7 dslr camera with a kit lens. The board is 13″ x 8″. All the lighting and placement conditions are perfect and I’m shooting on a tripod from 2′ away. The problem is I CAN’T get the entire board in focus. MOST of the board is but there are small areas that are not. PLEASE tell me what I need to do or get (macro or other). THANK YOU!

  • I can respond… The closer you get to your subject the harder it is to get everything in focus. My question is what fstop are you using Joe.
