Hi everyone sorry I have not been very active over the last week a couple of things have curtailed my activity, one of which is that I had a computer problem that made it lock up on start up and took me a while to sort out. Secondly I have had a stomach virus for a couple of days but glad to say I am ok again now. So I will be catching up on your blogs over the coming days. Right on to this latest post and as you know I like to try different things in my Photography, so I was in the garden yesterday with the camera looking for insects and on the garden wall I spotted Red Spider Mites.now to the naked eye these are pin head size, which at a guess is less than a 1/4mm, and I wondered if I could get a photo of one. So having made an addition to the setup I took a few shots and ended up with the image below, this image has been enlarged 100/% to try and give better detail, and the shot was handheld.
Normally I do not include EXIF of the setup but for this image I used the following.
Camera Canon EOS 20D
Lens Canon 60mm Macro with 12mm Extension Tube.
Marumi Ring Flash Unit.
Exposure Shutter Speed 1/250 second
f Stop f:7.1
I will try this again using a tripod to see if I can improve the image.
