Macro Photography

This is a macro/micro photograph of a dragonfly specimen, carefully placed on a mustard seed flower leafy frond. She was positioned so that the eyes faced the camera close-up DSLR with a Raynox macro lens 2.5 X attached to the ring lite. The camera monitor was flipped for better visibility as the micrometer rail was used for adjustment and depth of field assessment. The insert is a further expansion, dual video led lighting supplement the ringlite. A 6 inch square paper served as a color backdrop. ISO was 3200 185mm focal length with macro lens attached onto the 18-140mm prime lens. Taken at 1/125th f20,24 MP,22MP…raw image.
