I bought a Macro lens accessory set for my 52mm Nikkor lens. This past weekend I decided to take it for a quick test drive. Here are the results (I’m shooting with the Nikon D90 camera).
This was a fly on the window. Hardest part was getting him to stay still long enough in order to get the photo. I was quite surprised at how shallow the depth of field is on a macro lens. You can see it here. The wing is in focus, but the leg isn’t. So that’s about 0.5mm of focal depth. Next I’ll be doing some tests with smaller f-stops to see if I can get a bit more focus.
This is my wedding ring. Not too exciting.
This is my Citizen eco-drive watch. As you can see, it has had a lot of wear.
This is a little fairy ornament. I actually liked this photo the best. Nice lighting. Again, the depth of field is too shallow.
For this one, I actually put the camera on the couch and so was able to have a longer exposure time (and thus a higher fstop). As you can see, it has given me more depth of field, but not much.
This is a stuffed toy. Extreme close-up. I like the colours.
And finally, Mr. Spider.
