    At this 'Microscopic' magnification it is very hard to get a sharp image, you need to ensure the part of the subject you are trying to capture is sharp focus as the very shallow depth of field gives you little lee-way. Here is another very very small midgy.

    These are all full frame uncropped.
    If I wanted to I could edit all the dots out but this is just for example.

    If any one wants me to comment and give advice then all they have to do is mention me like you have and then I will be more than happy to offer my advice, there are also other much better macro photographers here that also can offer their advice.

    Want to take a macro then this is the thread.
    I have had a bit of a play around with my different lighting setups today. I changed the settings a bit to try and get the most out of each setup.
    They are both the same spider, just taken on opposite sides of the leaf, hence the different shade of green. It took me a while to find it again after I changed rigs. (and after I got rained on a couple of times )
    Both have had fairly similar PP.

    The first photo was taken with the onboard flash and a foam diffuser on the end of the lens, AKA "The Scott Murray Diffuser".

    Want to take a macro then this is the thread.-dsc_8299.jpg

    This shot was taken with my Yongnou 568EX and homemade softbox/diffuser, similar principal to Scotts bought one but a bit rougher and cheaper (same foam on the end as my original setup.)

    Want to take a macro then this is the thread.-dsc_8329.jpg

    I will take some photos of both the lighting setups and post them here in this thread when I work out how to get around only having one camera body.
    Thanks/Like Scott Murray, Lawrence, mikew, Bill16 Thanks/liked this post

    What are your thoughts on the two set ups?
