Follow on from someones query about shooting insects, this was my set up for doing Macro of spiders using natural daylight
(we have had some nice weather recently)
But you could also use constant light sources, or diffused flashes with this set up
I had no trouble with and reflection due to the card backing
My images where either cropped slightly or around 50% to gain maximum zoom impact
On these occasions using my 100mm macro (none IS), with extension tubes
