    Default First Go

    Hi

    I decided to have a go at macro photography so bought a decent tripod and a 150 mm f2.8 macro lens and a 1.4 tele converter so my first efforts on a not helpful breezy day.

    WOW they're amazing pictures Brian. You could have them blown up and put on canvas, they'd be fantastic. Wish I could do something like that. Well done

    Beautiful pictures.
    Like Claire said I am also still trying to get my head around AV, TV and the rest. I am lucky that I meet a lady at agility that got a Cannon and is a professional photographer and when she explained things it was easier to understand then reading the manual that is a big as the bible.
    One Question what is macro photography?

    aHi Sabby

    This is Max I think hes a Bull Mastiff but hes daft AND little Lily said we missed her out too

The term “magnification” is important because true macro photography does not involve “zooming” or getting cloaSFE/GB/BBH.ser to a subject; instead, we are relying on the lens itself to magnify the image that will be projected onto the film plane. In other words, just because your Sony F717 has a minimum focusing distance of 2 cm doesn’t mean that it can produce “lifesize” images by merit of its ultra-close minimum focusing distance. Zooming and how close you are to the subject really have nothing to do with macro; it’s mostly in the magnification properties of the lens. Still, just because you don’t have a true macro rig doesn’t mean you can’t get great insect close-ups.[/FONT]
