Re: Question about Manual focus

Yes you could move back some and close the lens down. That will increase your depth of field. You will need to use a tripod and a longer shutter speed because of the smaller aperture. Or instead of the longer shutter speed you could add more light. Since it is a still life, you can control that. Use flash or some other lighting means for both the doll and background. You could also increase the ISO, but that will introduce noise. But start with the higher aperture and go from there.
