This is the highest magnification that I photographed the Violet Darters at Lago d'Averno. A guy on a motorcycle was taking an unhealthy interest in what I was doing and my gear so I left. I've often considered starting a camera club here in the Naples, Italy area but it might just turn into a support group for people who've had their camera stolen.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (set to 3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT (E-TTL metering, -2/3 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I post I used Denoise AI, and Clarity in that order.

Whaaaat!? F.11 and only 100 ISO!? I've never been able to get a visible macro subject with settings like those. I usually have to crank it to about 500 ISO with flash or 2000 with ambient lighting.

What are you using for a flash, and where is it positioned?

Only have the built in flash right now.
