Excellent, how do you make this shot?

I'll have a shave....

I used a technique Jens Birch taught me. Required acquiring/disassembling a particular SLR zoom lens to get to the achromatic triplex deep inside and using that triplex as an add-on. Onboard flash was diffused through a styrofoam cup, also learned from Jens.

Depth of field

You could try to reshoot the image with more depth of field. Unfortunately the 5050 only goes down to F8. Shooting at wideangle would probably also have improved the situation, but the spider would have become smaller. I wonder if there is an auxiliary lens which allows you to take macro shots with good depth of field.

I'll have a shave....

Thank you for your suggestion. I'm working on exactly that and I hope to have the narrow DOF improved in the near future.

great shot

I know a barber....just in case. Incredible detail!!!

DOF determined by magnification and aperture...

..not the focal length. If you want to take a similar picture with a shorter focal length, you will have to get closer and end up with the same DOF. The only thing to do to increase the DOF is using a smaller aperture., Cheers, Jens.

a great picture Loren!

Yours, Jens.

DOF and Aperature

Thank you Jens. Btw I just noticed an error on this page re: aperature. The actual aperature was not F6 (as I just noticed that I had at originally listed here) but F8.

Strange spider

Did you ask it to grimace for the camera.
