Hi guys, last night I was trying out my new Sigma 105mm with D90 on some ants in the garden and have a hard time trying to focus on them. This is the first time I am shooting on insect.
I am using only the Marco lens with the build-in flash.
1. they simply move too fast
2. there are some street lamps near the shooting area but it is hard for see what I am focusing on. Therefore I am not able to focus on the eyes/head.
3. When shooting on 1:1 it is almost impossible for me to focus correctly and is always OOF.
I am trying not to use tripot as I find it hard to move around and some places are difficult to deploy the tripot.
What is the basic things that I should train up, setting or skill/technics that I need to polish up on.
Hope you guys can help me on this. Thanks.
