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?
