yea i would love to learn how aye, my guess is rapid burst as they turn the focus ring, but keeping still is hard enough as it is also like for example i use flash i dunno if the flash can keep up :S


Yeah, I have a Canon EX550 and an external battery pack. It seems to keep up. I also have a Macro ring light without flash and a 600w overhead light on a tripod. They all help with Macro.
A standard flash will nto keep up :(

Actually I got good stacked shots with a home made coke can diffuser and bellows on a rail.
A cheap way to do it

I am the same. I see things and am in Awe and wonder how they did what I was looking at. Facination is a good quality. If a photographer can create wonder, then he has suspended your belief.

I aim to try and put a person into awe and wonder. I also like being in awe and wonder.

This spider was less than 1/2 mm long. I ued a Canon MPE65 to be able to see it. It looked like a piece of dust blowing around, attached to a web.
I took this hand held. Very lucky shot !

I am going to try and film a spider with the 7D and MPE65. Should be interesting.

Posting my first 45 image Panoramic http://t.co/8B3fZwvu

Picture of the shacks at Pt Parham in South Australia, taken from the waterline.

Not a great one (Overcast day etc) but my first big panoramic. I have not put a thumbnail here as it will look like a thin black line :)
