How I Shoot MACRO - Panorama ...

these are some old pictures ... (I am doing full archiving and re-PP some "good" pictures to share @ www.liewwkphoto.com

while I shoot this , my gang ask why you need to do panorama for macro ??? I thought MACRO should shoot as big as possible ???and if not then just zoom out to smaller magnification .. then put the bug in full frame ... y ??? those want to know why .. may be email me :D or I will share later :D

I found a Huntsman Spider catch a Hoverfly (ohhh my lovely hover) and I could just shoot close to see how it eat as I only bring my MP-E65... so the smallest magnification I had is 1:1 .....so how I put this moment into a full frame ??? very quick, I lay on wet river ground, and with very fast speed I shoot 4 pictures with different focus point (right side, left side and 2 x center [in case I miss the focus] )...and here are origins picture I shooted

left


right


center


then I use Photoshop "merge" function to merge 3 into 1 .. :D .. so I got a large resolution picture in final a 7979 x 3387 :D

and a final image
... it killing a hoverfly (Pano) ...

Great shot(s). I'd be happy with just a Hoverfly or the Hunstmen but both, good one.

I've tried macro-panos too (when trying to squeeze a caterpillar into the frame) however I keep forgetting about it out in the field?!

Thanks for the info/tips/blog.
