    Just a few pictures of a very small flower at one of my co-workers house.

    If anyone knows what type of flower this is please let me know.

    I would increase the depth of field and fix the lighting. Use a reflector or off camera flash.

    Sometimes I wish I could, but when I'm dealing with the equipment that I used to take these macro shots i really don't have a lot of room to adjust the depth of field. Because I use a 50mm with a reversal ring in manual mode, adjusting the aperture helps, but then it often becomes too dark or dull.

    Next macro shoot I do I am going to test different apertures with my flash to find the right combination.

    Here is one with a flash, (SB-600 mounted), but in this case I didn't adjust the aperture and shutter speed properly so it looks overexposed.
