This photo was taken in March 2015 with a Canon 5D MkIII, TAMRON SP 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Macro and an external flash with a small softbox
Camera Settings: f/11.0, 1/160 seconds and ISO 50
The most unique problem of macro photography is the extremely shallow depth of field. When you get really close it becomes a massive problem or advantage depending on how you want to see it. In landscape photography with a wide angle lens and f/8.0 aperture you can easily get most of the scene in focus. In macro photography at just 1:1 magnification f/8.0 which normally sounds like a small aperture with a big depth of field, is now an extremely shallow depth of field. If you go down to f/22.0 at a very close focusing distance you definitely need some form of stabilisation and preferably a flash. The flash helps to increase the brightness for you to use a faster shutterspeed.
