I've been messing around with my macro lens for a little while now. I've mostly been toying with the lighting. These are the first ones I've gotten that came out pretty decent. I'm learning that it's sometimes easier to use my thumbs as support and move the camera slightly forward and backwards vs. manual focus. I think I'm starting to get the hang of the focusing part. The lighting is still proving challenging. I'm not a big fan of the composition in the first shot, but the fly was in focus and the lighting was good. I'd really like to get a MP-E 65 one day, but I'm considering some Kenko extension tubes in the mean time. Thoughts?
