My present setup for macro photographs is a 85mm prime on a fullframe physique with three extension tubes (about 70mm in complete). I do get fairly shut however I noticed some pictures of bugs which have an EXTREME magnification. One thing like this:

I attempted to get one thing like this with none likelihood of success. I attempted to mount my 85mm with all three extension tubes on my MFT digital camera which allowed my to get an excellent greater magnification. I switched to a 200mm lens with three tubes on MFT. I do get shut – however not THAT shut. That is how shut I bought with that setup:
Because the entrance factor of my lens was about 6-Eight inches away from this ladybug I dont know if getting nearer than that is the important thing. I would find yourself blocking the sunshine with my lens if I’d use extra extension tubes. Additionally the ladybug may fly away if I come to shut. The primary image has additionally a a lot smoother lighting and a superb quantity of DOF. Im 100% certain that this must be a studio made picture with manmade lighting and focus stacking. My questions are:
- Learn how to get a magnification like this? What lenses/adapters are concerned?
- Dont you find yourself blocking the sunshine when getting too shut?
- Is that this even potential to be taken out within the fields and the way? Or do you get these pictures solely within the studio?
- Wont the insect transfer away earlier than you may even attempt to take a number of pictures for stacking? Particularly when getting this near it. Or does this contain lifeless bugs?
