Thanks again Roger. I'm sluggish in the mornings too, but if I want to up my game I'll need to be more (pun not intended) focused! I'll probably kick myself when you tell me, but what's an LW?

lightweight - can't be lugging a monster -  nice 2 - 3 pounder

I found I hit a wall with primary flash lighting  in macro and found it better for creative shadows etc in still life. It took far less effort to go to natural light and get a better look that to be constantly scheming diffused flash set ups

You are on a  good path, you are filling the frame with the subject,, good poses, thinking about color etc

Try some easy targets first - flowers inside where wind is no issue.

Always keep the hand held option yet be proficient in a quick tripod assault.

Spiders are easy peasy for this if I were to offer up some arachnid fodder for target practice.

A man like you would really needs a dedicated macro lens to sleep well at night - no?

What does your doctor say about this? could be .... amacroinsomnia

Best Regards, Rodger
