Looks tasty! If I hadn’t just eaten a lasagne I could definitely force that down! 😋 Posting a little late is all good. Thanks for joining in!

Lol...

Fresh ground bison, sweet potatoes, peas, carrots, oatmeal, pumpkin, blueberries and green beans.
This is for our soon to be 17 year old super spoiled four legged baby. :D

Not being critical to everyone here as I get the same results. I notice on almost all the photos only a small portion of the pic is in sharp focus.
This happens to me on a large portion of my closeup shots. is there a secret to getting sharp closeups across the range, I and many others are missing?
I was going to play with focus stacking images, but it would be nice not to always have to set up a tripod take 6 pics and spend time stacking.
Anybody got any good knowledge on nailing cross range focus for closeup but not macro shooting.
Is shooting this, close just asking to much range from a lens without focus stacking?
I myself am typically using my A7III with either a 16-35mm or 24-70 2.8 lens.

Other than stopping down - focus stacking is about it. Good light and dialing in your desired DOF. I don’t have a proper macro lens for my Sony kit but focus stacking is super easy in Affinity Photo.

That was my assumption, the focus stacking process looks fairly quick and easy.
Its more having to break out a tripod to get the job done. means you gotta stop the show so to speak in the middle of a dinner party so you can get a photo of a dinner plate.
less awkward of your in a photo studio for a shoot

No argument there. Then again if I were to take a serious food image I’d have a tripod and lights with modifiers. :)
