| p.1 #1 · Newbie question: Lens reversing, extension tubes, and stacking |
Greetings macro gurus!
I am thinking about getting into more macro photography. I am a VERY green beginner in this area and was thinking about trying some of the "tricks" for macro photography to see how I am going to like it before dropping the cash on a new lens.
I've read a bit about lens reversing, extension tubes, and stacking, all of which seem to be different means to the same end. But I cannot find any sort of decent comparison between the advantages and disadvantages of each method.
I may have paralysis by analysis, something that happens with me a great deal, but I can't seem to decide on a method. Considering all of them are cheap, I am considering just getting a reversal ring, a few extension tubes, and a stacking adapter and trying them all out to see what I like best.
But, those of you who are more knowledgeable on the macro subject, care to weigh in? I won't ask which method is better, because I know that is subjective. But what are the advantages and disadvantages? What will give me the best magnification while maintaining image quality and sharpness?
