Macro Mania !!!

Macro Mania !!!

They say there comes a time in every photographer’s life, a need to explore ‘Macro’
Macro photography is a genre of photography where images produced are life-size or larger.
So you would see an image at 1:1 dimensions & can be magnified up to 1:24 !
When you start looking at everything in such close proximity & fine detail, you realize that there are so many wonderful aspects of nature that are completely ignored by the human eye.
Yes, the human eye is the greatest camera ever known & it gazillion light years ahead of the best technology we have today BUT the eye fails to capture macro details.

Right from the start I had a desire to try close up photography & the best i could do was shoot with the 70-300VR at 300mm so it produced a close up shot.
Though the results were good, it wasn’t entirely satisfactory.
Here are some ‘samples’ with the 70-300 🙂

So here comes the Monster Macro (or micro as Nikon likes to call them) lens – the Nikon 105mm 2.8G
Along with the lens i added some extension tubes, a macro rail, a speedlight (SB-700) among other paraphernalia.
Trust me, this is an expensive hobby!
