I thought it would be interesting to see the ratios side by side. 1:1 is life size representation on the film plane, 1:2 is half life size, etc. I used the Canon 5D macro kit and a hot light. The lens has marks for each ratio, so I just set it and moved out until the orange became in focus. Now I would like to go beyond 1:1.

Some more macro. I used the Canon 5D macro kit and just some hot lights. This image is 1:1. ISO 400, f/8 @ 1/30th. I like this composition because of the background colors and I didn't notice the thing on the stem until later...and I ate that apple, eww.

So macro is a little challenging, especially with focus placement. You don't get a lot of depth of field and if you move just a little, then its just off. I shot these this morning in the rain. I used a D200, 55mm macro lens and an extender ring, as well as SB800 flash on SC-17 cord all while holding an umbrella to keep it all dry. ISO 100 f/8 at 1/60th. I left it at f8 because I could still see some to focus and I ran out of hands to change it up.
