I purchase photos here because I need the quality and specificity of certain photos because I do photo manipulation scenes for personal artwork.
What I need a macro type shot of a cigarette without the normal macro shot blurring from DOF. I need a photo like this: https://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photo-cigarette-image6735120
-The only problem with that photo is the blurring, and I'd like to have the photo closer. I know this is a difficult shot but I do know a few photographers who say its definitely possible with a view camera or tilt shift lens. I believe I've seen a few cigar photos that are like what I am looking for but I need a cigarette.
I'd need the resolution to be as big as possible. I'd like at least 12mp or more.
The other possibility is taking multiple shots at different focus point and then combining them.
I'm guessing you'd want to use it to figure out what lens, camera, and settings were used, and replicate it with a cigarette. The only way I think its possible is with a tilt shift lens, view camera, or multiple photos at different focus points.
^ Yes and much closer, and more of an overhead angle. This isn't suppose to be just a simple macro shot. It needs to be a combination of shots at different focus points of the cigarette that can be combined into one shot that has mostly full focus of the cigarette. But the shot you have now...the focus throughout the cigarette might be acceptable..I'd prefer a little more.
And unless you have a view camera or a tilt shift lens I don't see any other way of doing this even though I am a pretty inexperienced photographer myself with just a 5000D.
