Bugs by the river

I think this might be my first image post on Dgrin although joined the forums a while ago. So here goes … some of you may remember my nick of FM forums, if I were you recognize.PCurrently I have 3 macro lenses, the Sigma 180 mm f/2.8, Nikon 105 f/2.8 VR Nikon AIS with 55 mm f/3.5BRI shoot with a Nikon D800E./PPThese were D800E + 180 + only one SB-R200 mounted to the front of the lens on a ring just using the cap of the diffuser that they come with. I live next to a river so can just come from the rear port, down an embankment and I’m there. There is always something to shoot./PPI am interested in comments where I am with this. I shoot RAW, PP includes some initial tweaks in Lightroom on the white/black/exposure/highlights/shadows sliders then usually I move to Photoshop. Does anyone sharpening I use OnOne Plugin suite, very often sharpen their progressive filter. Sometimes it is also useful dynamic contrast filter./PPThese were handheld @ around f/11, 1/320s, ISO100. I figure I should do more with lighting specific diffusion. I also added a Flash SB-900 2 more SB-R200. But with the SB-900 I am missing parentheses (any suggestions? And I will note I’m hopeless on homemade things) to get into a good position, but I have a couple of diffusers I can use with it, made by Lumiquest, the Promax kit and a larger Softbox./PPThis camera/lens combo is very important so I sometimes pop a monopod to give up the arms to stabilize things a rest use . If I that my subject is moving in a way that a monopod length require adjustment, will sometimes I just clamp the monopod between my legs instead. It is not as stable as when grounded but more regular than just hand company./PPIMG border=”0″ alt=”” src=”http://www.photo-natural.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/wpid-i-2F28zsF-XL1.jpg” /PPIMG border=”0″ alt=”” src=”http://www.photo-natural.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/wpid-i-nndwZ9S-XL1.jpg”/PPIMG border=”0″ alt=”” src=”http://www.photo-natural.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/wpid-i-gZHR759-XL1.jpg”/PPIMG border=”0″ alt=”” src=”http://www.photo-natural.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/wpid-i-8xnc4fw-XL1.jpg”/PPComments welcome.BRCarl/P
