Q + D FA 100WR + Bug = Identity Please?
1

Found a bug on our verandah wall this evening and he was keeping pretty still so I thought I would setup the tripod with the Q and DFA100WR and see what I could manage.

I've no idea what type of bug it is so if you know it would be appreciated.

I tried at a few different apertures, first with the flash, and at a higher iso but the results were so-so. Finally decided to try a longer exposure and light him with a flashlight (torch in aus) at a lower iso.

Anyway this is my first attempt at a bug macro this close so any comments/critique appreciated.

I have adjusted the white balance in Capture One (shot in raw), sharpened, clarity and dialed up the exposure up by about 2/3rds of a stop.

Thanks,

Paul P.
