Hi Andrew
If you are looking at insect macro’s then they are taken hand held. A tripod is useful for stationary objects such as flowers. You can get some much needed stability from using a mono pod but generally it’s hand held.
You do not need to buy a ring flash for macro photography. They are expensive although you can get an LED version off the bay for less than £20. A ring flash gives shadow less lighting and delivers the light directly onto the subject but the lighting is very flat and tends to give less contrast.
I own a ring flash but seldom use it preferring to use a Canon 430 ex with a diffuser attached which is a standard outfit amongst macro people.

The lens in the picture is a Vivitar 90mm f2.8 Macro in FD mount adapted to Canon EOS mount. It's 30 years old and I paid £80 for it off the bay and it does this

It also works quite nicely with flowers

Some great macro shots Dave! also I have a few questions if you wouldn't mind answering them, or anyone else who does macro photography:

Is most of your shots done handheld, or done using a tripod? Also do you find a ring flash is essential for macro shots as I'm looking at purchasing my first dedicated macro lens which aren't exactly cheap and I'm hoping I don't have to splash out a large amount of cash for a ring flash also, I plan on shooting insects/flowers predominantly outside if that helps.

Thanks in advance, Andrew.

Dodge. Can u shot in aperture priority mode, often A on the camera? If so use that and set the aperture number a bit higher than it is so if its at 2 or 3 and the third reel is blurring up it to 5 or 6 and try it. You will be lowering the aperture by making the numbers higher (confusing I know).

This will give a a larger depth of field less light will be let in tho so the camera wil take care if that by lowering the shutter speed or raising the iso or a bit of both.

This will sound stupid or thick, maybe both anyway.....

Best way to put this.........When I take a photo of my reels together the one furthest away is out of focus compared to the nearest! Is there anyway this can be sorted so all 3 are in focus? Its a sony hx20v
