    Thanks Bald egale

I always use a tripod, no positioning plate. I also use a remote shutter release cable. This really helps me. an off-camera flash linked to the camera by a cable. I hand hold the flash because it gives me a ton of flexibility as to how the subject is lit from any angle I desire and I can vary the intensity. This is one of my "Golden Rules", always aim for the eyes, if the eyes are sharply in focus, the rest will follow. When using tubes, any movement will cause blurring, I found that out the hard way, wind drives me crazy sometimes. Hope all this helps. also, try using ISO of 400, a little more grainy sometimes, but it may help you.
    Thanks for the insights into your methods they are very effective BTW the spider shot was rather underexposed I had to drag it up a bit with silkypix
