Re: What kind of camera do you use when taking pictures??
I use a NIkon D300 set at a relativly high (1600) ISO. This allows me to utilize a very small aperture, at least F32 to give me a great depth of field which is very important in close-up photography. Also, the use of a tripod lets me use a very slow shutter speed sometimes down to 2 full seconds to be compatable with the small aperture. This allows for everything from front to back in the photo to be sharp.
Hope this helps.
