Thanks! They are handheld, I've never used a tripod for insect shots.


C&C always welcome

I accidentally underexposed this photo quite a bit. Wanted to use flash but it didn't fire because the batteries had been drained by the shots I had taken previously. By the time I noticed it, the damselfly was gone. Thanks to the 80D's dynamic range, I could push the image quite a bit in post. Still not ideal, but usable, IMO:

Michael -- you've indicated that you hand-hold all of your macro shots. What is your technique for the MP-E 65? I haven't had much success with mine unless I use a tripod and a focusing rail.

Regards, Jim


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.
