    Alf, can you let me know what lenses you use for these pictures and how you get such clarity with the images?

    We have been through that before here

    http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/sho...ighlight=macro

    It is down to a combination of things in simple terms they are:

    Accuracy of focus (sometimes a lot of shots are taken)
    Depth of field
    Quality of lighting (I almost always use flah with a homemade diffuser)
    Processing I always shoot in RAW and process in a combination of Lightroom and photoshop.

    Then there is a lot of practice and perseverance need I find along with a fair bit of determination.

    Thanks Alf, my memory isn't what it used to be...

    Practice and perseverance is probably the key...

    My memory is not what it was.
    As I said if you come up this give me a shout.
    How do shoot MF or AF zoom macro lens flash or natural light tripod or handheld.

    All of which can work.
