i.e. willingness to set the tripod up perfectly only to find your subject decided to peace out while doing so ahahaha.
Indeed... but my question had a certain background: Afaik most really good macro (stacks) of insects are done with the animals frozen, tied down or simply killed... with these subjects, the viewer cannot tell the difference except wonder however the photog managed to set up the beautiful lighting and persuaded the animal to cooperate.
This is (one of) the reason I seldom do insect macros these days, it's fun for recreation, but what good is crawling through the woods and chasing butterflies and dragonflies if catching and killing them produces the better shots? My stacks are usually of mushrooms, they only grow outdoors, you cannot farm most of the at home and you can integrate the surrounding so you see it's actually outdoors :-o
I know some people do that, but I would never dare... I think half the fun of it for me is in trying to spend enough time to get an image of a bug just on its daily grind. I understand your disappointment with the shittier method for sure, but not quite sure why your turned off to macro of bugs entirely as a result. You can 100% capture incredible photos without staging anything, I think the first one I posted is a prime example.
I had ZERO background in macro or stacking. I spent maybe 5-10 minutes on google, and maybe a total of 2-3 mins getting the photos themselves. Editing/stacking was maybe another 10 mins tops...
I'd say give it another go :: )
Here is one of mine - natural light and processed same as your image. 5 shots.
How did you people manage for the animal to remain stationary while doing the focus stack?
While this picture technically violates the pictures in this thread (by being shot with an iPhone), I still can*t resist.. I am feeling soooooo happy now!:)
While we wait for the next rumour of the 7D2, 5D4, speedlight700, or the 400F5.6II.... let's have some fun. Post some images that may have been photoshopped... I'll lead off with Godzilla's kitty....
Weight doesn't bother me, but size does - I love the 300 f/2.8 and 70-200 f2.8 IS II, but they are beasts and take up a lot of room in my bag.
Ef100 f2.8 on 5Dmk3.
I really like this one. Well done Menace.

Don, didn't you understand it? Wile E. Coyote will never catch the Road Runner!

Compare the 400mm f/2.8 IS 1 vs 400mm f/2.8 IS II
Hi Surapon & Menace - I was just commenting on the thread - jasonsim is the OP asking the question. I couldn't be happier with the two bodies and feel extremely fortunate to have both
