I'm planning on getting more into Macro photography in the future. I find it to be very enjoyable, but hard to master. Here are a few of my favorite shots.


A promising start.

I took a look at your EXIF but didn't see all I wanted too.

You seem to have a choice of good camera bodies.

The only aperture showing is f5.6. Personally, I use f11 most of the time,occasionally f8, almost never f5.6. That is with m4/3 with the x2 crop factor.

I see focal lengths of 300mm and 500mm. For dragonflies and butterflies I would tend to agree with the choices. For smaller subjects and I mostly use 50mm or 100mm but have used 30mm a lots in recent months. For the highest magnifications I use 25mm.

You seem to be shooting JPEGs. Although they are supposed to have improved a great deal now, RAW respond to processing and to compression better. Also, you can correct the white balance easily.

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

I generally use an a7r III and 90mm Macro. I also have used a long telephoto as noted for subjects such as dragonflies. I shoot RAW and then convert to JPEG during my editing to post. I have been shooting more stopped down recently and am also starting to use focus stacking more.

Got my table top tripod and focus rail set up and took it for a spin for the first time yesterday. Full stack of Vivitar Nikon F extension tubes + Zörk multi-focus system (but straight, just as another extension tube) + Rodagon Rodenstock 80mm.

Baby's first focus stack:

I want to get closer. And figure out something to hold the specimen so I have more composition choices. Laying it on a table was an exercise in frustration!

Only semi-macro, but I've just got the Vogitlander APO-Lanthar 65mm at the moment. Feel free to criticize! All of these items are tiny, flowers don't get very big in the desert out here.

Bought my first macro lens. I think I’m in love - messed around w/ off-camera flash placement for too long and burnt my steak!

White balance is obviously off in #2 but I kinda dig the vibe.

After all these shots here on this thread I am hesitating to post my mediocre works, but anyway, please don't judge me too harsh
