Apertures

My macro lens arrived (Tamron 90mm macro with VC/image stabilization; the older version), so although I’m too literally shooting in the dark (ah, noise), I tried it on a vase full of markers I have at hand, to see the depth of field change with the aperture. They were all at a pretty low shutter speed (1/60), so I balanced the decreases in incoming light with increases to ISO, except for f16, where I was already at ISO 6400 and just left it and pulled up the levels in Lightroom.
