Sometimes. Depends on available light and what I'm expecting from the shot. It's something you can tell just by looking at the area. If it's shadowed and I'm shooting with a smaller aperture, yes. If I'm really close, almost always yes as it can help control shadows. If I'm at a little distance, (not much needed when shooting at 2.8), I'll try to use what's available if it looks good.

I'm still pretty new to photography. But I really love macro and over the past couple months of using my DSLR I have managed to get a few good shots. Here are some of my best. As always critique welcome. Enjoy!

Of course the mandatory butterfly shot


Some sort of fly that decided to kindly stand still as I set up the shot.


A honey bee.


I love monarch caterpillars and they love the milkweed!




Not sure what kind of caterpillar this is but it is cool.

Jesse, do you shoot in RAW? I need to figure that part out. What post editing software do you use? Great pictures.

I always shoot in raw.
I use Photoshop CS 3 and Lightroom, though I haven't put the time into learning Lightroom yet, so most is with PS. I started with PS Elements which is very inexpensive and will give you most you would need. You should have something that came with your camera for RAW editing.

Thank you! I will look into my camera box to learn more about RAW.
