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.

Much fun using my Fuji XH2 and 80mm macro lens. Just got the system last week, loving it! This is one of my first attempts at focus stacking. Downscaled of course, the original is 221 meg!

Finally entering the world of macro. My setup: Tokina 100mm F2.8 with 48mm extension adapted to a GFX50S.

Nice colours but the image is so big we have to scroll. Yes, we can double click to see the whole thing but it would be better if that was not necessary.

New to macro, spent some time last year in the fall shooting bugs. This is probably the one I'm happiest with so far, using natural light. I'd like to learn how to incorporate artificial light but so far I have been unsuccessful in achieving a nice look that way.

Heavily cropped in to 1883 x 2353 from 6000x4000 in order to get the DoF I needed.

1/500, f/8, ISO 1600

I am fairly new to macro photography, I used an a6000 with Sony 90mm 2.8 Macro in the past but recently moved to full frame with an a7IV. Here are a couple I liked from the a6000 and I will post more with the new one.

These were the first two macro photos I took that I liked

I'm completely new to Macro, and pretty much clueless lol .... So if you see any problems, or glitches, I'm completely open to suggestions. Oh, so I'm using a rented Canon RF 100 mm macro, which has to go back in a few more days But feeling like I'm just going to have to buy it I wish it had stronger native magnification.... But none of the stronger Macro lenses (that I've seen.... direct me to one if I've missed it) have AF, which I think is going to be critical for in-camera stacks of 60, 100 or more shots. These 4 shots were stacks of 60 to 200 shots. So, I've just been using it with two 35mm extension tubes, plus this is on my crop sensor R7, so that gives me more reach as well. I think I'm shooting at pretty close to 3 X's magnification. Put it this was, I used little to no crop on these Aphid shots. A 1-5 X's mag lens WITH AF would be the holy grail, but I don't think their is such a thing

The last 4 here > https://flic.kr/ps/3sNzDS were from yesterday afternoon. I was first intending just to shoot the whole Strawberry blossom.... Then, after I started looking at it through the macro lens, I noticed the exoskeleton of... not sure, but another Aphid ? Then noticed the live Aphid...and even another buried down in the Pistils
With the winged Aphis, I could only barely see its wings with my naked eye outside, looking through the strongest part of my reading glasses My camera sees better than I do lol So I clipped off this little tiny rose bud and bring it inside. Then I could see it was another Aphid, but with wings. I was happily surprised to see all the rainbow effects pop up on its wings I was doing like 60 to 200 shot stacks, and at some points, to get enough light from my LED, I was shooting as long as 3 second frames (I need brighter light) The little Aphids totally migrated in between two of those shots > then, never moved while I messed with them for 30 more minutes How lucky was that ? I assume they are juveniles, but I know nothing about the life cycle of Aphids. Never new they had faceted eyes either Oh, the Wasp was a dead one, but I thought the shot came out pretty good.
Anyway, I'm having a blast. During my first week of macro shooting Totally open to suggestions and critiques.
