I am amazed at what macro shoots captures and would like to venture further into this field of photography. I thought a macro lens (I have a 85mm micro) is all it takes but I guess I'm totally wrong.. I am hoping to go beyond 1:1...
I've been reading threads of discussion and youtubing to learn more but now am the juncture where the investment (hopefully not alot) will start..
Appreciate if someone can advise which option I should consider..
1. reverse one lense on the camera, but this means I need a manual aperture ring lens
2. Reverse one lense onto another lense (that is mounted normally on the camera), i have an old minolta lense (motor drive 28-80) that i can wedge the aperture open, then use another lense on my cam thru a reversing ring. But what lense do i use? A telephoto?
3. Add extension rings to my 85mm micro?
4. Get a macro convertor? (but i have a macro lense)
Maybe there is another option that i haven't yet read about?
Appreciate all comments and suggestions to help me sort out my confusion...
