These are terrific, Fernando. I'm just getting into real macro...have been using the EF100 2.8 for a while and have made some nice shots, but more recently I've been trying to get closer. Tried reversing the 50 over the macro and while it magnifies it ain't pretty!
Did you use your MP-E65 for these? What lighting set-up please?


Growing old disgracefully!

Thanks Ricardo. I appreciate your comment. I think I used the 100mm for these. The exif should be there. I used a single canon flash on a home made bracket. I was also using a sto-fen diffuser. Nothing special. These is a thread I began years ago with a picture of my rig in the macro talk section. I'll put a link up tomorrow if you can't find it.
