A focus stacked image made of 6 frames.
Each frame taken at: f16, ISO 200, 1/200sec with flash in ettl mode.
Setup; camera was setup in a manfrotto focusing rail on top of a manfrotto junior geared head all mounted on a set of tripod legs (might also be manfrotto ).
For lighting I used a 580M2 with a lumiquest softbox held above the insect as well as white paper placed below the insect and the twig it was on so as to bounce light up into his face from the flash so as not to darken the underside too much.
Again combine ZM was used for the stacking of this shot - and again seeing the end result I wish I had spent more time getting more frames for more depth - but still its come out well with details and the end result is one of the sharper results I have had with this setup.
