Try your macro settings and anything else you wish and see your results. If all goes well, you may only need to crop the best photo!

I just found this - a pic Roger took of me using the technique for a praying mantis shot!

Very interesting technique!

My camera is similar to the one in the photo, a panasonic Lumix. What setting do you use to "find flash settings and turn it way down"?

How did you get the bowl to stay so straight on your lens?

Old is a state of mind.
I will age, but I refuse to get old.
