Hi everyone here,
I just join clubsnap yesterday.
I hope to learn more things in photography from you all here. I bought Sony A100 with 18-70mm and 75-300mm almost a year ago.
Recently, I got interest in macro shooting and actually borrowed a 100mm F2.8 Macro lens from my cousin who bought it but seldom used.
I am still not familiar with macro lens usage and I hope to learn from you Alpha Macro lens pro out there.
- Do I need to set anything on the main body setting?
- Do I use AF or MF on the lens?
- Do I use Full or limit on the lens?
- Do I need a external flash if I go into more pro shooting like insects?
I was playing with it few days ago to capture just a electrical component with AF setting but seems tough to get the clear focus on the object. The lens just keep moving in and out.
Hope you all could give me some advice on the macro lens usage
