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/22.0, 1/160 seconds and ISO 200

When using a small aperture in macro photography you will need a ton of light. Unfortunately getting very close usually causes you and your camera to cast a shadow on the subject. It is preferable to change your position. But to get a great shot you need the perfect point of view as discussed earlier limiting your moving abilities.
