Danski, I really like the soft light and the colors you have in that first shot, I find the background pleasing too.
On your second shot I wish the bees eyes were in focus and I feel there is too much empty space at the top.

Ahnlp, you have a good subject in your second shot and the focus and sharpness are really good. I think it would be improved if the tip of the wings were not cut off and if the background was a bit nicer (lighter and less busy). When shooting pay attention to the backgrounds before taking the shot and while composing, and try different angles. Even minor angle adjustment when composing can make a big difference in the backrounds.

Thanks for your comment! I'll trying to follow your guide ;-))) Thanks so much!

Thanks, and me too on the bee eyes.

One reason to shoot more than one frame at a time, I suppose...

I suppose the empty space could be cropped out, but there is some color.

Sometimes, you never know how it will turn out- especially with the LCD on the 1D, but I like the way it renders colors.

@danski: Very very nice shoot, cheer! I love the first pic more ;-)))

This pic might look a little better ;-))) Insects fly constantly, I tried to capture in focus.

From a recent foray. Handheld, natural (harsh) sunlight. Macro flash and diffuser on the way...

I like the angle on the subject Tim -the framing looks good from that perspective.

The photo looks cropped, and I'm wondering if you manged to get the wasp's legs in the original. There's two ways to go with a subject -either get the entire critter in the frame, or isolate the head (just like shooting a person).

Get in the habit of framing with the view finder instead of cropping in post...

I've only had true macro capabilities for 5 months or so, so I guess I'm new at this. Here are a few of my successes.

First time trying this. I don't really have a Macro lens, but I used a 20mm tube along with my 80-200mm. How do you guys get such sharp images? I'm I just using the wrong lens or combo?

Josiah, welcome to the forum!

It's hard to tell at that size, but it doesn't look unsharp to me. Of course, a good lens (I suspect yours is fine), a steady set of hands and or a sturdy tripod, or shooting with flash and short shutter speed will all lead to better sharpness.

Not a bad start and welcome to the forum. Keep shooting and posting. I like the colors you captured in the last one.

Luck is one way

There is very little depth of field in macro. Depth of field gets thinner as magnification goes up. To compensate, you use a smaller aperture to provide more DOF and this requires a longer shutter speed or more light and/or more ISO to reduce shutter speed.

Another trick to maximize the depth of field available is to make sure that the image sensor/film is in the same plane as the subject.

Paying attention to the background is also important.

Setting your desired focus/magnification manually and turning off AF can help.

The other way to good macro pictures is keeping all or some of the technical stuff in mind.

I've had a macro lens for a couple of years, but I haven't really used it much for macro purposes. Here are some recent shots - any critiques are welcome.
