  • My 1st macro exprience with nikkor 105VR

    Hi,

    This is my 1st attempt to take macro picture using nikkor 105vr. I believe 105vr is a very good lens but the result that i produced is just so so.

    All photos taken using nikon40x, 105vr, tripod, pop up flash & 100% cropped using PS and export to GIF file.

    C&C are welcome.

              not able to view ur Exif

              1. try use MF
              - as ur pictures seem OOF
              - after fix ur magnification e.g. 1:1, move forward or backward to the object
              2. lighting , you make need to do diffuser (styrofoam plate....) or like mine
              flickr set
              3. try 1.3 or 1.2 :1 dun go to 1:1 straight
              4. try ur best to have SS 1/125, Aperture 8
              5. practice more, start with static object

              hope this help ..... and enjoy .. MACRO is not simple

                Thanks liewwk. I will try it again on this coming saturday.

                My main problem is i'm using a tripod and cannot easily move the camero body forward & backward.

                The ligting can be improve and most probably will get the SB600 an try to do some DIY work

                Do u mean i need to manually set the SS & Aperture to take macro photo? Usually i only set the aparture to get enough DOF.

                My another question is should we set the file format to RAW file when take macro photo? Can more detail by doing this?

                Please avise.

                    yes, try to use manual or u can use Aperture mode too if that's is he case then try to make it F8 minimum as start

                    shoot in RAW, so u can adjust saturation, exp (this is normally what I did) ....
