Focal length: 100 mm
Shutter speed: -8589935/1073741824 sec
Aperture: F13
ISO: 200
Notes: I used a tabletop light tent with 2 flashes, one either side. Camera hand held because I can never be bothered to get the tripod out. I find if I set the focus mode to AF-C that the lens tracks my body movements and yields more in-focus shots.
