  2. Those are two really disgusted looking kitties...that first expression (is that Ike?) is hysterical. And be patient...getting used to a macro lens takes lots of practice, lots.

    1. That is Ike - funny guy. And thanks - I am glad to hear macros come with time because if it was supposed to be instantaneously, I missed it. I am encouraged now - yeah!

  3. The kitties don't look very happy. Maybe they were protesting modeling for you :)

    Nicki what is the problem with your macro shots? Maybe we can help you.

    1. Jo Ann - I think my problem is that I want to get too close and consequently over shooting that crisp up-close macro. The suggestions is to set f/stop in the 11+ range, slap on the speedlight, up the ISO and adjust the shutter speed. My way of thinking has been to lower the f/stop number to get smaller range of focus and adjust everything else accordingly. It also seems like the auto focus motor is slow.

    2. Nicki I get as close as my lens will allow me, unless my subject is big enough to overfill the frame. On the Canon 100 macro the minimal focusing distance is 12 inches. I think it is the same on Nikon. If I set a flower shot up inside I always use a tripod, I use remote shutter release or set the timer and I don't use my flash, I use window light, and a reflector and keep my iso on 100. I have usually been frustrated with my focus if I didn't use a tripod with natural light. I do use my flash on butterflies or spiders, and I do increase my iso some.
