Re: OlyVision

Love the macro images. I love attempting things like this myself but technique is so difficult due to challenges of depth of field, lighting, subject movement, working distance etc. It would be really useful to know how these were taken. Some macro photographers use a "wildlife" approach with natural light, hand held, fully mobile subjects etc; some add flash of various sorts to illuminate better and freeze action; I've heard that some capture their subject, chill it in a regrigerator to make it quite static, and then compose a photo where they want, with chosen lighting and tripod and head with micro-adjustments on a macro rail and maybe (if everything is static) focus stacking.
