Re: Nanoha Super Macro, GH2 and a Fig Wasp

Good work on a small subject.

Not sure why with a ring flash you needed ISO 640. I'm happy with a 4:1 at shooting non stacked (maybe 3-5 shots stacked but not often) at ISO 100, F/32 using a ring flash set at a 1/4 power. Why ISO 640 ??. I do shoot hand held at that because the flash duration is short. On a fairly flat side on subject as this, even at a 4.7:1 you won't need that many images stacked. At this ratio side on and not much DOF to it, I would imagine a max of around 14-20 shots on a dead subject even at that ratio.

All the best and nice work, now how about some live subjects outside

Worry about the image that comes out of the box, rather than the box itself.
