Today’s subject was the Christmas Cactus in our backyard. As before, I used the Auto+, Program, and Aperture Modes for each set with four different f-stops and focal lengths. This gives me enough photos to figure out which combination of settings does what and which to use in the future. In addition, I did one other set, using the focal length of 105mm and going as close as possible towards the flower.
The Camera setting for the Sony SLT-A77V with a Sony DT 16-105mm F3.5-5.6 lens was:
- Metering Mode: Auto
- Drive Mode: Single shot
- Shooting Mode: Aperture Priority Mode
- Aperture setting: f/5.6, f/8, f/13 & f/18
- Focal Length: 16mm, 35mm, 70mm & 105mm
- ISO Setting: Auto
- Focus Mode: Single Shot.
Below is the complete set of photos taken:
