I recently got myself a Nikon 105mm Micro VR. Was super excited and went SBG this afternoon to explore the world of macro.
I then quickly realized that shooting macro without a tripod is a killer. Ultra tiring and very hard to get super sharp subject while maintaining acceptable DoF (at least for me).
I'm planning to go back tomorrow but this time armed with a tripod. Any recommendations for one that would suit my needs (I'm 165cm)? Am using the lens with a Nikon D40. Budget is around $150.
I've tried searching the forums but the tripod + head combinations are rather confusing. Would be great if you know of a good place open tomorrow morning, and what tripod + head combination is suitable for me.
Thanks a million!
