Just curios, How do you take Macro portraits?
I encounter these two reptiles face to face with a macro lens. I think these is the best I can do to portray the reptiles. Do you have any advice to improve or tips for better portraits? Gave some ideas please? I appreciate very much.

Cheers
Abdul

Abdul,
The green crested shot is very nice. Well focused eye.
I'm just wondering how your metering works on a manual mode. :D

Maybe it is manual focus. :)

Good work on the first shot. Great focus.

Thanks nickpower, sgt.pepper and falcon.

FYI: Camera D100 was put on manual mode, centre-weighted and SB80 mode DTTL Matrix. Rely on Auto focusing as I find when on manual focus, the focus point is behind subject.

Metering mode rely on manual.

cheers

Yes that's the way to learn how photography. My preference would be spot meter instead of centre weighted as to me I find spot meter to be more accurate. Anyway good judgement on your exposure level.

Me too. I've been using centre-weight and spot metering more lately as I find te focussing is better if I have control over it.
