Soft & Lovely
Here’s the setup for the above image
Lens 6″ from blossom; 105 mm macro lens nearly wide open for soft background
This is what my iPhone camera sees from the same location
The fixed focal length lens isn’t the main problem. The macro lens used for today’s feature photo is 105 mm – fixed – and does the job perfectly.
The problem, for my style, is the lens’ fixed aperture. This makes selective focus impossible — but it’s great if you want everything in focus.
Selective focus is important to me. A phone camera will not(!!!) do that (until the laws of physics are rewritten). Attachable phone camera lenses are not the answer. The ones I’ve tried are junk! Even the ones with 5-star reviews.
