    Hi I'm new here. I took about 20 pictures of this thing today with my Olympus C750 in it's Super Macro mode. These are the best ones I could come up with. I belive the are both F3.2 according to my EXIF data. Does anyone have any tips on taking macro photos of bugs and crawly thing?

    Personally, I don't like the DOF on 1st, but OK that might be my opinion only;

    But, on the 2nd, that out-of-focus huge leaf is very distracting + you've cut the subject, so I'd say that 1st is much better than 2nd.

    Just MHO anyway...

    Agreed, the DOF is too narrow. IMO if your subject is a bug (just as if your subject is a person) you want the entire bug to be in focus. The coloring of the millipead is suttle yet perfect and I would like to see that more.

    Ok thanks I'll keep that in mind. Suprisingly out of all the photos I took of it not once did I get the entire or even half of the millapead in focus.

    I personaly like the first ones DOF. I think if the whole bug was in focus it in part would allow to much of the background also. I think that would distract from the subject itself.

    I like the saturation in the foliage.

    For the second one i dont care for the hotspots on the miliped and the angle donsn't lend itself to the bug in comparision to the first.
