It was early in the morning and this very cooperative Metallic Chafer Beetle allowed me to take over 200 frames, and I used the opportunity to experiment with the position of my flash heads. This session has led me to stop using a Kaiser Adjustable Flash Shoe on the key light. Due to the changes I've made to my light quality the Kaiser was working against me.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX RT (E-TTL metering). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Denoise AI, Sharpen AI, and Clarity in that order.
