Comments about this group.
My name is Michael, and I just joined the forum. I have taken a few macro shots in the past with a couple of different lenses (not the best), but have now decided that I'd really like to start getting into it more seriously.
I have a number of questions regarding equipment, and before I go ahead and post them I just want to confirm that I am posting in the right section.

I just got a Sony 30mm macro lens to use with my Sony A55! Yay! It's my first real macro lens. I'll shoot some stuff with it tomorrow and post a photo here tomorrow afternoon/night some time.
I was so pleased with my first ever macro photograph. Nettles out of focus but the bee looked really sharp to me. Now I know what macro and really sharp means. Since I have been on this site I can only say I have been amazed and astounded at many of the shots I have seen and only hope one day I will be that good. The more I learn the more I need to learn. You think your doing well and then see just what can be done in photography.
Hi I am new to real photography and recently became hooked on macro photography being amazed by some of the fantastic images
people have prodcuced
I recently purchased a Tamron Sp 90 macro still trying to get the hang of it , I am keen to see how others do it whilst trying to develop my own technique
Just bought a 2nd hand Tamron AF 70-300mm F4-5.6 DI LD Macro lens for my Nikon D40. I am new to "proper" photography but love some of the macro shots that I've seen and can't wait to try it myself once the weather gets better.
I workin up close, I live on a smallholding so most of my work is nature based and used to wrok with a Dcr-150 but picked up a sigma 50mm macro 10 days ago and I love it
Hi all. I am a keen photographer of all genres but I particularly like nature, wildlife and macro work. I am seeking to improve all the time and am currently working towards an ARPS distinction with the Royal Photographic society, so any constructive critique or suggestions for improvement are always welcome. Having seen the quality of many of the images on ePHOTOzine I am sure it will help me to develop my technique and artistic appreciation.
I love macro but at the moment only have a bridge camera. I have a wish list for santa
I have just joined ePHOTOzine after a friend from work recommended the site to me. It's all very nice your family saying "Ohh thats a lovely photo" but I want people to look at my pictures and tell me where I went wrong and how I can improve them! I don't really know what type of photography I like best, so I am trying them all but macro excites me at the moment! For macro stuff I am using a Nikon 105mm and D90 although I am tempted to buy a close up filter to stick on the 105mm as well!
I just joined ePHOTOzine after leaving another 'forum'.
So far in 2011, my 105mm f2.8 Micro VR lens hasn't been attached to the D300s!
I've been playing with a used 80-200 f2.8 AF-D instead.
I have some nice macros in my archives, maybe I'll post one to the gallery for comments to see what everyone here thinks.
Quote: I wonder if now that autumn means cooler weather, fewer 'togs venture outdoors to bag their macro shots?
It's fungi time, no slow down yet.
I wonder if now that autumn means cooler weather, fewer 'togs venture outdoors to bag their macro shots? Will there be a major slow down in picture taking?
Managed a couple of shots in the Lynx
Gorgeous sunny afternoon here Paul!
Alianar, You shouldnt have to save too long. They are available on Ebay for about 6 bucks and with free shipping. I got 1 Nikon mount and 1 Canon mount each for less than $7 (usd) each from Hong Kong. They are metal and come in 5 parts so you can adjust the extension tube length. They are manual but focusing at marco is something best done manually any way. You should look into it or just go ahead and spend several hundred dollars on a name brand, your choice.
Damned weather. Rain is getting in the way now! One day off and it is pouring down...
Hopefully getting a Canon EF 50mm F2.5!!!!!
I am taking a lot of macro images at the moment and enjoying it too, I am using a Canon EOS 5D 2 and Canon 100mm 2.8 macro lens.
Regards. - gary
I LOVE MACRO!!!
just saving up to buy an extension tube!
