    Hello,I got a new macro lens.The canon 60mm one.
    So I set out one morning trying to shoot some close up stuff (unsuccessfully) lol when I found this fly bathing in he morning sun light.He was supprisingly willing to have his portrait taken. What do you think?
    All C&C welcome.

    The fly!

    He's "cute".
    But the DOF is surprisingly shallow for a dedicated macro lens. I get as shallow a DOF when I turn round my kit lens and use the reversed lens technique. I thought a dedicated macro lens might give you a tad more DOF after all, or how does Doenoe get his insect pics done where they are in focus through and through, I wonder? Ringflash and small aperture maybe? :scratch:

    Yes I think the aperture I used was pretty large but this is a new lens and a new type of photography to me so not bad for a first try lol. I was thinking about a ring flash but wouldnt that scare off insects. Thanks for the super quick reply Lafoto and advice.
