Re: Macro Photos Without Focus Stacking.

Even though most of my photos are done with macro lenses doesn't require me to always get a 1:1 ratio for the picture.  My subjects are often fast moving insects that will spook very easily.  If I can fill at least one square on a rule of thirds grid,  I will get a good picture.

The challenge is to get a good picture.  A macro lens helps me to do that.  Sometimes that means that I will back up to get more of the subject in focus.  The part of the picture in focus is more useful than the out of focus area.

At macro distance or very close focus,  chromatic diffraction is so small that you would need to enlarge the picture to an extreme size to detect it.  Even then, the areas in focus would look much better with less diffraction then the out of focus area.
