Insects
May 8, 2011

I've been experimenting with closeups of insects. I'm not happy with the sharpness I'm getting with my reversed 55mm f2.8 Vivitar on a 2x Vivitar macro teleconverter. I'll be looking around to see what else I can try. Also learning about flash for macro.

The main challenges are darkness in the viewfinder when stopped down, wind, and that bugs tend to move.

Cheers,
Seth

What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?
