close-up with greater depth of field

I am new to Pixalo Photography Community and may have this question in the wrong forum. If so, please redirect me.

I am taking close-up photos with a Nikon N90 camera and an AF Micro Nikkor 105mm 1:2.8 D lens. They turn out fine, with the center in perfect focus and everything else out of focus. However, I need the items near the center to be in focus too. Maybe for 2-inches or so around the center of focus.

I don’t know how to do that.

My primary lenses available include an AF Nikkor 35-105mm 1:3.5-4.5, an AF Nikkor 70-210mm 1.4-5.6 D, and 1, 2, 3, and 4 single lens close-up add-on lenses.

Re: close-up with greater depth of field

The problem with macro is that DOF is miniscule and the only way around it is to either stop right down to f/16 or f/22 which will probably necessitate a tripod and a static subject, or use a flash, just make sure it is near the end of the lens. Click here for more info, good luck with it and let us see the results.

Thank you Hacker (Colin?), you answered the question and your A beginners guide to macro is super.

There is another way, and that way is called CombineZ.
It's a free download and worked a treat for me.
