    I've seen your work ever since I've been here and I'm always impressed, even more so now that I've started with macro. I just don't seem to be able to nail the focus like you or get the depth of field that you get.

    Guess I need more practice ;)

    Great shots!! What was your setup? Ive been trying to get some dragonflys for a while now but never can get them setting still! The only insects I can usually find are grasshoppers.

    Beautiful macros. Hard to pick a favorite as they're all so good.

    Daan, excellent work.

    I don't think I can add much to what's already been said...great lighting, dead on focus, and good DOF....:thumbup:

    Thanks for the kind words everyone :D

    Practice is pretty much everything you need. Sitting still and not forget to breath is the hardest part. But with some practice you can sit pretty still and get some nice shots :)

    I shot these with a Canon 50D with a Speedlite 430EX on it and a Sigma 105 2.8 macro. Usually i use a Lumiquest softbox on the flash, but these were shot with a normal difuser. Settings: ISO100, 1/200 or 1/250 and the aperture between F13 and F16.
    Yes, i get loads of bad shots, but i just dont post em here :)
