I'm trying to take pictures of merchandise, in our little antique shop. We make displays inside these 2x2 feet square cubes. All my images are taken within a distance of 2' to 6.' The items displayed might be as many as 3 to 7 items within one cube, all having a slightly different depth of field, sitting on the shelf. I've had my D7000 set to the S, single sensor. With this setting, it seems to be leaving some of the images slightly blurred, with the selected area, being the only thing in good focus. My question is: Should I set to AUTO focus? And, which area mode should I use, so that everything in the composition comes out in focus?
I also need an understanding of how to take pictures of jewelry, and keep it all in focus. Which Mode setting.
Thanks for your help.
