WOW, amazing capture!
@AllandDharmawan Pick up a manual 55mm or 105mm Macro. Not that expensive and really versatile.Another option would be to turn your 50mm around with a BR2 reversering. Enjoy!
@AiilenG: yup, 50mm Nikkor f/1.8 plus extension tubes :) Thanks for visiting!
@LadenTamang: thanks! :)
@sttweets: Thanks... hehehe, macro lens is still not affordable for a 16-year-old-student like me... :) hehehe, but I love macro, that's why I bought manual extension tubes.
nikon 50mm? =)
amazing...love the shot!
@AllandDharmawanWell done! Patience, patience, patience...I did the same for my pictures, but I used a macro lens instead of a bellow combination. I use the bellow inside, but find it to much hassle to take it outside.
@sttweets: Thanks :) I photographed this Dragonfly outside, with available light, and 1/32 internal flash :) I tried to approach it quietly, I think it was my luck day, hehehe... It sat still for a very long time.
Very nice! Made me think of my own image: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/553...Did you photograph this Dragonfly outside, or in a studio setting? How did you make it 'sit still', since working with bellows takes quiet a lot of time for each photo.
@JosephBullock: Thanks for your compliment! :) I didn't use macro lens, but a-fixed-50mm-lens with 2 extension tubes :)
Great close up. Must be a super close up lens you have and a steady hand on the tripod :)
