    Exclamation Super close up photomacrography help needed..........

    hi mate, i'm new o clubsnap,
    and i'm playing with some stackign lenses super macro close up shooting.

    the DoF just toooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo small, less than 1-2mm,
    and i'm using a 70-300 + 50mm f/1.8, and when it was set t 200mm, no Vignetting occured, but the DoF is jsut too small, even i shoot at f/22.

    anyone know how to get this done?

    i'm using : Nikon D70 + 20-300 + 50mm f/1.8 with tripod and 2 table light.
    the lighting should be fine.

    you mean you're using reverse lens with a 70-300? very very interesting set up.. your DOF like you've experience will be less than 1mm actually

    yes, reversed mount a 50mm /f.18 infront of the 70-300, and the picture was taken at 200mm, so, the reproduction life size is 4 times. and the DoF is.... less than 1mm, indeed. and even i use f/22, there is no much diff. anyone can help? or anyone know and more experience in stacking lense? what's ur combination then ?

    From the picture, even the angle of the eyes look like they followed it faithfully.... was their idea to create the EYE effect???

    Sorry for OTT on the eyes....
