    thanks.

    i actually wanted to keep both the angel and the ball in focus but couldnt and didnt know how. i've set my focusing point on the ball to keep me in focus. i tried setting the point in the middle and both went out of focus. is there anyway i could focus on both? i use a d90 btw.

    You would either have to use a very small aperture or use the dreaded photoshop [ I hate having to use it as a crutch ] . Someone submitted an article on hyperfocal distance for my blog which may help . If you use the smallest aperture you can [ you will get diffraction ] and focus 1/3 of the way between the closest and furthest object that is probably the closest you could get to having them both in focus without having to resort to PS .

    i didnt want to have too slow of a shutter because cause it might be blurred and the lighting condition wasnt that bright too. so i focused on the ball instead.

    Some bounce flash could have fixed the problem .
