Great shots Roy. Great shots.

I have a couple of points to say, maybe you can consider that on your journey of photography.

Try to get a own style of image processing. Some look very greenish and others do not. Try to get a photostory with the same kind of... you know.. colors.

In the last ones that throws me off a bit.

And besides.. the shots are awsome and never saw so much detail in these animals (By the way... if i have them around, i would be scared as hell. yes.. i am afraid of spiders and so on..)

You could do some better on composition, some are just a little cut off which throws me off :)

Like the first image of post #2248.. Awsome shot, great detail, but open space above the head, and cut of legs... if you had done it a little lower, the frame would be more filled and the whole animal would be in frame :)

Again, just my 2 cents :)

Greetings,
Roy

TY for the input sir roy. these sets are cropped a little. like less than 5% just to straighten the photo a bit. i just wish for a true macro lens so that i can have a better working distance and get a better composition. using reverse lens is very challenging. and having this kind of magnification i can sometimes be at least 1 inch away from the subject. leaves, twigs, etc. gets in the way. specially those shot that are a bit yellowish or greenish. a leaf acts as an extra diffuser :)
i have been playing with a different set-up with this set. as you can see on the reflection of the eyes. flash reflection not the same. and the magnification is way better in this set-up. more challenging though. my regular 55mm magnification(reversed) is like its at 50mm or less.
that maybe my next step to improve as a photographer. make a story on what i shoot. im still learning and very much welcome to any suggestions

Roy,
What lens are you using to get these great shots? I can't believe you can get this close. Amazing!

How do you mean "reversed lens" Roy? I have always wanted to try macro but can't really afford a macro lens right now. :unsure:

Great shots, as per usual btw. :side:

i got into this reverse lens set-up because i have no fund to buy a true macro lens as well as extension tubes. some people do the reverse lens set-up by just reversing the lens and holding it while taking a shot. i find this very risky since your camera is very open. cleaning it could cost you more. i bought a 52mm reversing ring in ebay for less then $3. got to wait more than 2 weeks to arrive :)
some people give up right away on this kind of set-up because the only thing that you can control with your camera are your shutter speed and ISO. if you have canon, in some body you can know what aperture your using. for nikon, aperture control can be done using a toothpick(aperture lever). using a flash gets best result.
i use the 18-55mm because i dont use it. kit lens that comes with my camera. using a prime get better result but i like the zoom of the 18-55mm. in this links shows a bee at 55mm up to 24mm i think:

Wow, that sounds...kinda dangerous. :P Interesting, for sure, but it sounds like something that'd go wrong for me, like dropping the lens. :lol: I might give it a try though, I'll just be really careful.

I am amazed at the shots you have gotten with this set up though. Some of them are absolutely amazing. Respect sir! :)

Thanks for your answer btw. :)
