Whole new world under you nose!!

Hi,

Recently I started to master new photography area which supprised me a lot!

This new area (for me) is macro photography. It's amazing, there was always a whole world under my nose and I didn't noticed it. It takes a lot of patient, but when you take a successful photo the results are just amazing!!

For good quality photos you'll need a good macro lens. I'm using the Sigma 150mm 2.8 and I have to say I really like its results. In addition to that I just bought Nikon's R1 Kit which consist of two small flashes which you can put on a ring which is attached to the end of the lens. This kit is not necessary but in a lot of cases it sure do helps.

Having good macro lens and good tripod can do the job. The best times for shooting macro is sunrise and sunset, when most of the insects are sleeping.

It's still new to me and I really want to master this area more amd more, seeing all these details which you can never see with your own eyes is fascinating!

Hope to have more Blogs like this... :)

At the moment I have Nikkor 100mm. I like it really a lot! But I think about Nikkor 150mm. I want to get closer to the objects. Wish you a lot of success in macro photography!!!

Macro world is really very unusual. I've opened it recently for myself too. At first it seemed as we lived on a different planet:) Even flowers look totally different. Not to mention insects.

Great images! I'd like to take macro shots, but I'm not too keen on getting too close to bugs lol. Have a great day :0)

You are always experimenting something, travel somewhere, doing something fun. Do you ever sleep? :)

You have some beautiful macro shots! Yes, the world of macro photography is amazing -- the details of a common garden spider or housefly are awesome! It’s a remarkable world out in the garden. Enjoy!
