    how close do you have to be to an insect with a macro lens to get those kind of results?

    this is a great shot. What lens did you reverse? Is this image stacked?

    I wrote a little about my setup overhere . Also more photos on my weblog here


    For Buzsaj... 52,5mm (yes I measured it ;)

    For Tcimages...I used a 24mm lens. No stacking just one pic. I was lucky with the spot on focus.

    thanks a lot all.

    cheers, Mark

    That diffuser of yours is interesting! Something to copy (steal from you, heehee)... the only reversed macro photos I have ever taken in my life I have taken with the reversed lens HELD (with my left hand) to the opening in the camera, and my approaching into focus with my body movements (tiny, tiny movements, and the beating heart can ruin it all, or breathing, for that matter... :roll: ). But then I have also mostly tried it out on plants. They are less skittish than insects ;).

    You have obviously well SPECIALISED on the subject. Very nice outcome in most that you show on your weblog-site!!! Perfect outcome here, too! And the COLOURS ... ahhhh :lovey: !!!

    Well, you've mastered a setup that takes an incredible amount of work with great results.
    I do think the razor thin DOF is taking away from some of your shots tho.
    Is there any reason why you haven't invested in a dedicated macro lens for better DOF and working distances?

    at any rate...great shots man! I tried this when I first started macro, it wasn't easy.

    Wow. Not one there that I did NOT like.
    Kept so simple in their composition, their effects are enormous. You do know how to work with colours, shapes, points of view, focus, exposure. Wow! Really, really good!

    wow, those are great shots. You got my respect, cause that reversed macro stuff is pretty hard. And then to get so close to the little buggers. Good stuff :)
