    Fuji, the lighting I used for this picture is a light tube made up of an old white glass lampshade with 3 meters of led strip lights wrapped around it, getting the colour balance right was a pain , the leds produced a light with a slight blue cast.

    Golden fly

    I give around 10 seconds between shots to allow vibrations to settle and flashes to recycle, with a good shoot I can normally have a finished picture in hour and a half.

    Hatter, I use a stacking rail which is controlled by the PC, it can step from 0.7 of a micron ( 0.00003 inch )upwards in very precise steps. Typically I set it around 65 microns which gives an 50% overlap depending on which lens i'm using .

    Fuji, I think I know what you mean about the Art Deco look, for me its steam punk, almost expecting to see jets of steam and the sound of gear trains whiring away.

    ChrisD, it is a stacked image 144 shots stepped at 35 microns, probably could have done it as well with less.

    New macro lens

    BP, yes the same, I had a heck of a job in mounting it. I stripped down an old c-mount lens in the hope that it would fit, of course that would have been too easy, it's all part of the fun I suppose.
