Loving the bugs, just wish mine would co-operate.

Your bug?:) For real bug macro you generally have to stop waaaay down (F11 or even further) and use an off-camera flash to make up for how dark your pictures going to get.
Sorry if you knew that already, but when folks say they are having trouble bug-shooting, that's often why...

You've got to love this lens… Attached is a hibiscus flower bud I took with my 50D, shortly after getting the macro lens.

As I don't really do macro, after I got this lens I kind of panicked...I know it's a great lens, but what am I doing with it?!
Then I started to figure it out. Got some picks of a type I've always admired from others but never got myself...til now :)

1: they won't stay still long enough
2: I used a 40D and it front focused way too much (just got a 7D)
3: I use a MR-14
4: They still won't stay still long enough but I'll try again with the new body.

I'm very new to macro and thanks for the advice.

I prefer Pachelbels lesser known work, Canon in L and the 99 cent menu club.

You should do a search on threads by "Lord V"--he's really helpful and gives good tutorials for macro. By the way, when you get down very close bug work, you are better off in manual focus. The depth of field is so shallow you just kind of move your head very slightly forward and back til the eyes come in focus and "click":) Good luck!

Man, I need to start using my 100 f/2.8 L, it is my least used lens.

Did you use flash for this shot? If yes, what type of flash setup did you use?

I am one of those people...so I purchased Canon's dual head macro flash. The issues I am now having are keeping the color true and adjusting the angle of the light heads to make it work. By that time the bugs are hibernating.

Ricardo - wonderful image. Sort of what I have been trying to capture, so far without doing so.


just a few of my thoughts...
