View Full Version : Proper macro

Received my Nikon lens to Canon body adpt. today. No more electric tape to hold the lens in place. Still very tough as I need to be one inch away from subject and very shallow dof. 200 pics to get 3 I liked.

Looks like you got the hang of it quite well though LL. Nicely done, and yes macro lenses sure have a hairs width dof. Which lens are you using btw?

AF Micro Nikkor 55mm 1:2.8.............its from the late 70,s early 80's.

Very nice indeed ... now all you have to do is change your camera, and you'll be even happier ... :evil2: ... I hear Nikon makes good bodies .... and even old lenses work on them no problem ...:evil2: (can you tell I use Nikon??)

Lovely macros, Lungelarry. They can certainly be challenging with moving subjects at mere millimeters depth of field. I really like the colour in the first one.
