How do you get the different background colors? Is that done with PP or what?

Out of interest, how do you focus on the eyes in this circumstance? Is it luck plus plenty of photographs to choose from? Auto-focus? Manual-focus?

Cheerio, David.
I use Manual focus, fix the focus and while holding the camera still, I sway my body to and fro, and when the eye 'appears' sharp, I will snap the pic. Well, you have to activate the shutter just b4 it turns sharp as the body is swaying...requires some practice, but like you said.....alot of pics are out of focus!

Marvellous as always.
Macro is really a sector of photography which stays by itself.
A world apart.

Do you know which results can be obtained by stacking two Nikon 6T?
Is it worth the double expense?

Francesco
Stacking two together will give +5.8. Not sure what is the effect though.......by frankly, I think the 6T can do alot by its own. Of course, if you are taking very small subjects, adding another lens would help. I am using the Sigma CU filter which is a +1.6 dioptre value.

Its natural, and not done by PP or PS. It really depends where the subject is, and where I am framing it.
