    Excellent guys I have always been a fan of Macro photography, the small world has the best colors, action and compositions.

    Exceptional Peter. I assume you are using the nikon 105mm macro

    I recently got myself a 100mm tokina macro, but had not have much time to test it out yet.

    Thanks Benn

    I have three macro lenses. The photos above were probaly all taken with a Sigma 180mm f3.5. This discontinued lens is insanely sharp and gives good working distance and a 1:1 magnification, but is comparatively large and does not live in my camera bag anymore. I often coupled.it with a no-name brand 2x teleconverter that was damaged and then had all the lenses removed so as to become an extension tube.

    My other two macro lenses are old Nikkor AI-S lenses (made in the 70s and 80s). They are the 55mm f2.8 and the 105mm f4. This last one i never use, but the 55mm lives in my camera bag.

    Jaco, i have already mentioned the lenses. Camera on all these wS Nikon D7000.

    The biggest issue with macro photography is lighting. It is much more important than the lens or camera.

    If you shoot Nikon, they make a wonderful twin-head macro flash setup which you may see in a number of law enforcement series on tv.

    However it is expensive, costing the same as a good macro lens. My setup consists of an aluminium bracket with two old manual flashes attached via miniature ball heads. These are diffused somewhat, and you will find many difcerent opinions as to what material makes the best diffuser. The best i found was the semi-transparent corrugated plastic you sometimes find in boxes of chockolates.

    Thanks Peter!

    The D7000 is a lovely camera.
    I have neglected my photography over the last couple of years. These images are inspirational.

    Close up Photography is challenging, especially when getting past the 1:1 magnification. But also rewarding and entertaining as your subject matter can be on a pot plant on your stoep.
