Fuji S2 with Tamron SP90 - 1:125 @ f/11 handheld, with SB-80DX (via a SC-17 cord) also held by hand ! What a gymnastic i had to do :roll: !

Pity though that i couldn't get more DOF, because at 1:1, on the following pic, wich is FULL FRAME, not cropped at all, i had to choose
weather i should focus on the body OR on the eye, as with f/11 i couldn't get both sharp !

Excellent shots Jean-Pierre. Maybe go to f18 next time, unless there just isn't enough light. The shallow DOF is tough to deal with I'm finding out.

I guess i will have to "cheat".. that is, i will try to shoot twice: once focussing on the eye, and another pic, focussing on the body, then, the usual "copy/paste" stuff ! Would that be fair :wink: ?

Absolutely fair Jean-Pierre. How is it fair to use a black box with complex optics and an electro-mechanical shutter and 1GB flash memory cards to capture images in the first place? Why is one pristine, but two is cheating? 8)

Whatever it takes to get the best representation of your vision of the subject is fair. :wink:

Very good, I know what you mean about DOF. Thats the whole trick in Macro,very difficult for me. I usually am too excited to set up a tripod so im rocking back & forth with the DOF moving in & out.

I bracket the f stop and shoot more than I think I need.
