are you using auto focus for these shots?

Your voice is so awesome in every video, born for narration. You're an old soul, my friend.

I have a Nikon d7100 and an 85mm macro lens. If I try to get too close to a subject, it'll go out of focus, so I can't get really close shot like these. I would have to zoom in and crop it, but then the quality is not as great. Also, a lot of my pictures are kind of burry. How can I take closer pictures without having to crop it like these pictures, where u can see the compound eyes so crisp and clear, and not have it blurry? Any advice? I'm new to photography and I really like to take pictures of bugs. Is there anything else I would need to get?

Fantastic stuff.

TheFlowMind says:

Do you get not magnification with extension tubes or with a proper lens like a 105mm?

Donald Brent says:

AMAZING work! Thank you for sharing.

I think so it would have been more useful to show the technique that used for stacking.

Thomas thank you for sharing, your work is truly amazing!!
