3x at F16 and ISO 800 by dalantech 3x at F16 and ISO 800 by dalantech
I was trying to bait a wasp into feeding on my finger, and while waiting for the critter to climb out of some grass this fly took advantage of a free meal. Looking at the level of detail I'm starting to re-evaluate shooting at F16 with the MPE-65mm macro lens.

Also testing out a new diffuser

Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F16, 1/250, ISO 800) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (@ 3x) + a diffused MT-24EX.

You mean like this? [link]

:)

I use either sugar water or honey. The ants will carry dry sugar away, but they'll stop to drink a liquid ;)

Ohhhh! This is disturbing!

It definately has a different feel from your usual output. But I wouldn't dismiss it out of hand! :p

There is always a problem with two changes - or deviations if you prefer - at once because you can never be entirely sure which is having the most effect and on what.

The fly definitely looks flatter than your usual output and instinctively you'd put it down to the light. However it is entirely possible that the softening due to using F/16 is taking away from that third dimension.
