    -yes, once in focus, you can shoot immediately but make sure you don't slap the shutter button, that causes vibration. Squeeze the shutter button lightly when the subject is in focus (half press when you are focusing)

    That said, I'm not a macro photographer. lol.
    ok..still trying out the steps as stated above...Just find that the focusing forward and backwards to be difficult...

    For "macroing", when the object is so small, even the slightest movement will cause the subject to be OOF, so how do you actually get your subject in focus, by doing cha-cha or ?

    I've tried "holding my breath", but my body will still sway even the slightest...

    *I hope it's not because of the equipment I use, I am using 55-250 + Raynox 250*

    #1

    Shutter Speed: 0.5sec on tripod,
    Aperture: f/32
    FL: 187mm

    #2

    Shutter Speed: 1/60 sec, handheld
    Aperture: f/5.6
    FL: 163mm

    Pardon my noob shots...still very new in shooting macro. and the wind makes it worse -_-
    Rule of thumb, FL 163mm -shutter speed at least 1/160s for handheld shots. Unless you are super rock steady, which you are not coz your body is swaying.
    On tripod, on slow shutter speed, even the slightest breeze will cause your subject to b OOF.
    Take the shot!

    So, the basic technique is still to:
    - 1/xxx shutter speed
    - flash (if needed)
    - hold breath
    - once in focus, shoot immediately?
    Contrary to that, flash will make the BG black. Diffusing the flash is to soften the light falling on the subject to reduce shadows n for a more even form of lighting.
    Shooting @1/xxxs & small aperture will get you black BG.
    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
    Take the shot!

    Uncle skystrike, for the flower shot: just curious why you chose to go with f32? Just curious.

    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.
