I’ve just written a guest post for one of the most popular photography learning sites out on the Net called Digital Photography School. For more info on DPS, check out my review.
I’m a big fan of macro photography. So much so that when I chose my first ever digital camera, the Nikon Coolpix 4500, it was mostly based on its macro capabilities. And when I purchased my Nikon D70 with kit lens, the next lens in my bag was the Sigma 105mm macro. I still have my trusty Sigma 105mm and I use it often.
Not long after that, I discovered SUPER MACRO photography! So my next purchase was a Nikkor 50mm lens. No, not for portraits. It was to reverse it on my Sigma 105mm to shoot some wicked super macro photos!
In this article, I explain step by step how to set your gear up for super macro photography. I also show you some fun sample images.
Alright! Let’s go read the article already! 🙂
*note: I mention using a step-down ring to screw your 50mm lens on your macro lens. It seems the proper term would be reverse or reversing ring. Basically a male-male thread. I got kinda blasted for that in the comments. 😉
