    Sorry for empty reply. Bret, the subject is terrific. The capture
    leaves a whole lot to be desired. You are one stubborn Southern
    S.O.A.B. Yeah, it (the subject) was active. But how about a mono
    instaed of your committed adversion to the use of a tripod. It would
    be a giant improvement. P.S. If you are fervent in your determination
    not to use "manual" IS (a tri/mono/pod), than get a real IS lens.

    I've never seen bugs in a "menage a trois" before.
    The one in the middle is called "Lucky Pierre"

  7. You do realize that this is Macro photography. DOF is very shallow,
    especially when up this close. He focused on the eyes/face and that
    is what is sharp.

    I don't believe he understands that.
    A tripod would have made no difference.

    Not to mention the fact that the photo was taken on top of my deck
    Think of taking a photo of a bug crawling across the top of a wall.
    Now how are you gonna position your tripod when the camera lens must
    be an inch or two from the bug (directly over the wall)?

    I may get a Gorillapod for just that situation, however.

    Now that depends on the lens you're using. Some macros will stop down
    into the f/40 range but I don't recommend that handheld unless the
    subject is a light bulb.
    A tripod with a center post that can be aligned horizontally may help in
    a situation such as that. Manfrotto has several models that allow that.
    Gitzo has some that allow it to be set at any angle from below
    horizontal to vertical. Pro4 Imaging does the same and seems to carry
    it a little farther.
