8th April 2008

At last the isects have put in an appearance, a sure sign of spring! I have kept the bridge camera set up with close up lens sellotaped on and the external flashgun and diffuser fitted ready for them.
There are difficulties of course, the depth of field even at f11 or f16 is still so shallow with the smaller flies like this one that you have to make sure they are lying parralel to the lens, or you only get a small area in focus.
This is a problem with live subjects, you can't take repeated shots of them and use a stacking software like stackup to give more depth of field.
