These are specatular... may I ask what camera/lens combination you use? My Nikon 5700 is pretty good for macro's but nothing like this!

Thanks

Sure! I can tell you that I am using old simple (hemmm) Sony DSC-V1.. Actually, I think, It is the closest cam to the pro one.. lacking a bigger lense and zoom option..

It's a compact digicam For macro photos I use exclusively point metering withj macro option or setting an exact distance to the object. And another option that I love with macro shooting is AE lock. That helps to bring out the focal point leaving less important things in shadow. I dont use a tripod.. since I have got a very steady grip handheld.

No other secrets. Daily training is important! The more you shoot the luckier you get!

Delicious. Number 1 is a fantastic picture, framing, spider web thread, everything. Perhaps they expect lunch or dinner. They look hungry

Somehow those buds are coming for a visit, and they donĀ“t have to bring flowers

Hey DG.....
Great close up's...The focus and dof are right on...The detail from that "old" sony is really good...I love the little fuzzy thing on the green flowers...I guess thats a little seed that flys in the wind...probably one of those damn dandy lions... Great shots....

Thanks for the information. I really love these pictures, the first 2 in particular. They are not just close-ups, they are beautifully composed within their surroudings, and somehow this work speaks to me.
