Thanks Rik, well I deviated somewhat with respect to illumination. The top one was with flash and 5 sec delay. The next 3 were done with Jansjo lighting 1 each side and 2 1/2 sec delay . Did this because I ran out of batteries for the flash and decided to check the results again with the Jansjo ligh...

Flash units for Micro work

Am using a D750 Nikon. Have an SB-700 unit but need two more to create all round lighting. Ideas ? Not expensive flash units and how would I set all 3 up to fire simultaneously ? I guess they have to be compatible to the D750 or maybe not ? Can someone give me some ideas / thoughts , instruction her...

black spider

Thanks Chris for the comment. I did use a flash SB 700 on hot shoe and diffused. I can use two more flash units to see the difference. I imagine I will have to adjust their output somewhat if using 3 units ? The SB700 was on 1/8 power. I i use 3 units do I specifically need to drop the power of all ...

Black Spider

My first attempt at a black specimen, so questions to pose. Was a 5x attempt, flash 1/8 diffused, delay to shutter. Appears as though maybe too much exposure because of the shiny front on the spider. Are there specific parameters to use if photographing black subjects. Pic attached. Comments please....

first macr re done

Hello Mr Rik, thanks for the extension of software. Here is the pixel piece you want. Something else that bothered me was the fuzziness at the far side of the head. In this last stack I kept going in an attempt to get rid of it but did not succeed, what does it represent? Is it simply an area not in...

first macro re done

Rik, this is an image of an "inch Ant" naturally about an inch long with a sting and bite to match and boy do they get angry when you upset their nest. Hope this crop of the final Zerene image is what you need.Image

FIRST MACRO RE DONE IMAGE

Chris, are you saying to re adjust the focus each shot ? How would you do it ? The Velbon slider is mounted on a dual way micro slider for action, the Velbon just holds the camera. This shot was done with a 4x micro on the 200mm Nikkof F4 lens.
