I use to shoot conventions & had f11 @9ft & flash sinked & never worried everything was in focus without touching anything. It was great for weddings also.I never had pics out of focus & manual is all I used.

Himadri – OMG!!! MEI you are so incredibly BEAUTIFUL (And that is an unarestdtement)!!! What a dream come true! The pictures are AMAZING!!! It looked like SUCH an INCREDIBLE time!!! I am so happy for you and Stephen! Haha! I love that the flash mob worked out!!! All of the details came together SO WELL!!! LOVE EVERY SINGLE PICTURE!!! It made me feel like I was there!

I used lens reversal years ago .I figured with all the electronics it would not work.I had a reversal ring & would bracket shots., can you do it on the new digital cameras ? I need some how to link please?

This is hilarious. I learned photography with film and manual focus over 40 years ago. Anyone with a camera now thinks they are a photographer. I still shoot manual focus and don’t put my DSLR on auto anything. My pictures turn out just fine. You might learn something by turning off auto. Oh, and I used what was called “a darkroom”. No Photoshop. I learned how to get the shot right in the camera with only 36 chances.
