That's a great portfolio of pics up there^^^
I'm still learning my way around this macro lens of mine....:
Excellent, I was particularly admiring the bug, now this ^
I have not really been successful with macro yet, it's too hit and miss with my set up; an old manual nikon macro zoom fitted to a manual 3 x teleconverter, or the old way reverse a lens and fit it to the camera with a threaded bayonet adapter, the latter gives a very shallow depth of field, b ut both ways theres no metering, so a lot of guess work.
What got me back into photography was discovering RAW files, the interest came back as it is the technicalities I like and it does remind me somewhat of my old dark room days.
But ta both of you for comments on my pics.
But ''crappy old nion dslr'', which one ?
It 's funny though, my friend who has gone pro as an events photographer still rings me up to ask how to shoot situations that her £16k Nikon's automation can't handle and when I go out locally with another photographer running an x thousands pounds worth of Canon DSLR I get asked how to do stuff that I can do with my crappy seven year old Nikon DSLR, thus proving it's not always the camera, but the knowledge behind it. I used to shoot on manual SLR's before digital and used to process my own film.
But am impressed with the growing capabilities of camera apps on cell phones.
Oh and the Nikon/Canon debate, when asked , I say Canon has always led in exposure systems and Nikon optics and general camera durability.
