    I have done some macro work on digital, but this was the first time i tried with film. Here is a small jumping spider using canon eos300 and mpe65mm.

    The spider was similar colour to the background so it doesnt stick out much in the pictures. I also am new at enlarging so im not sure how to improve the final product.

    I have a grand idea, buy a subscription and post these to the critics gallery.

    These are really good! It made me think that I should try some BW macro also.

    I so far haven't done macro in B&W, but I think I might try it.

    Thankyou for the replies. With film you have to take your time with the photo as you only have a few shots unlike digital, where you can take many and pick the best out later.
