Rod,

You have a very good lens for beginning with macro. Apparently, it is sharper than the 60m version. I rarely use AF for macro, so no loss there.

I don't know what to make of your fist image, which looks entirely soft but the watch is sharp and contrasty.

It looks like you have been using wide aperture, which would not be my choice, and that which is in focus is too central.

Not exactly macro, but I have seen others post similar pictures in this section.

It qualifies fully. Many years ago, this board was set up for just such close-ups and the definition, if it exists, is now rather loosely defined.

This topic was started a few yeas ago for beginners to post alongside other beginners rather than posting individual topics alongside more experienced members. There is nothing to stop you doing the latter if you prefer.

Nice image.

Intentional, to give the image a soft painterly/impressionistic look.

Not sure who you are replying to, if my photos ^^ above your reply - f/8 @ 90mm and very close focus distance, hand held. Could go higher and push the ISO I guess.

First attempt at Macro. Got out of my truck and saw snowflakes along the top of the outside of the bed. Tried doing the handheld technique as I didn't have time to setup any lighting or get my camera on a tripod thinking they might melt. I can't remember what aperture I shot this at as I took it on the Laowa 15mm F2.8 Ultra Macro and there's no EXIF communication. I actually think it might have been at 2.8 because I remember that there was very little light and I was pushing the ISO pretty high. I know F2.8 is far from ideal but what is a good aperture for handheld macro? Any and all C&C welcome. Thanks.

A pretty good result.

I rarely shoot macro wider that f8, more often f11.

It is your shutter speed which should prevent motion blur, together with image stability.

A series of settings, taking notes, is probably the way to go at first.

I think if you had used flash there would be a plethora of unwanted highlights.
