    To get it right is to get to know your equipments well n adjust the settings accordingly to the current lighting situation. And also go n shoot more n record your shoot. From there you can see wat went wrong n do not repeat the same boo boo again n go join the macro outings n learn from the seasoned shooters

    Thanks, will keep it in mind when I do my next shoot..

    Usually when we shoot bugs the general aperture varies from f11-16 (though I sometimes go f4.5-f2.8 for the lulz)

    Mostly flash is used also. Ambient light is harder to work with unless you have good control of the light etc.

    Just some thoughts.. love the feel of the second picture though! The texture and lighting is lovely.

    One more thing: the reason we normally shoot in the early mornings and late at night is because the wind isn't so bad/or none at all. Also, most insects will be resting then so they don't run/fly around.

    I use f/32, cos I was hoping to get the whole flower in focus Since was on tripod, so turned the aperture to the smallest *when shooting, also forgot about the diffraction factor *

    Thanks for the comments of the 2nd shot thou still abit OOF...

    I read somewhere about the Raynox will give thinner DOF than real macro lens, which is also a reason why I choose an extremely small aperture...sigh, guess I still got to learn about my equipment first by shooting more.


    Both shots shot in a late morning/early afternoon (~12), so the sun was shinning over the flowers/plants, so I tot light will be ambient good even without flash... (Even if so, my ISO was still pretty high at 1600 -.- )

    Will try a diffused flash next time...btw, built-in flash or external flash or both works?



    btw, this is the "not-so-close-up" picture of shot #2

    Try using a shorter focal length for a little more DOF. Can just crop, right? Most of us using prime macro lens have 90-105mm's, anyway. No reason you have to always go all the way to 150+.

    I used to use the built-in flash when I started out (yes, Randomers saw me grow. Daaaaaaw) Works good enough IMO but yeah, need to diffuse or you get ugly lens shadow lol.
