Hi,

I have a canon t3i with the stock lens. I don't know much about photography so bear with me. I need a lens that doesn't focus too much on one object but you get a pretty clear view of the background and objects closer to the lens. It would also be nice if I can put my camera a little bit further from my workspace so I have more room to manipulate clay figures. Ideally I want a nikorr lens with the adapter to my canon to avoid that flicker I sometimes get.

Best
John

Hi John, what you need is to use your manual settings. Not a new camera lens. You may not even need one. This video does a pretty good job of explaining how to get all you need in focus and how to leave parts blurry if you want that too.

I would look at a full frame Sigma 70mm F/2.8 as a good macro lens, but maybe you can fined a used one New they fetch 450$+ Canon will need an adapter.

No need for a new lens. Use a smaller f-stop (f-20 or higher). You may need to add additional lights though.
