Here for two reasons. One the usual comment, the other, anyone know what it is? Looked like a small Sheild Bug, but very small and they are normally larger unless it's a youngster. Less than 1/4 inch long.
EOS 7D with Sigma 150mm EX Macro at minimum focusing range to image about 1.6:1. Greater than life size. Sigma ring flash on auto but set at +2.3 stops at this magnification from experience. Manual on camera, 1/200 @ f18. ISO100. Focus on manual, camera on monopod. Focus by moving whole set up backwords and forewards.
All you out there new to macro, note there settings. They are mine, but might be a starting point for you. You do need flash for these of course.
