    I found 2 Lenses Im SOO excited! I found an Awsomee Macro lense... see!




    And then I found a 2x zoom, not so exciting, they arent the best quality lenses, but the macro is preaty nice!! IM so excited as if my macro wasnt nice enough, now I can use this! My Moms camera is a Dimage Z1 with 3.2 megapixles, and the macro lense is a Vision optics Titanium .5X Didigat Wide Lense...

    Well IT says its a macro in red along the side so i figure it is, either way Im happy!

    Now to the point of this post, what kind of Lenses And Cameras does every one ealse use?

    Cheers

    I like your first macro picture. I use a Canon g6 for lack of funds for anything better.

    I use whatever I can borrow since the complimentary Earthlink camera turned out to reflect the concept of "you get what you paid for". I paid nothing and nothing it provided. I would give up to half my fiefdom for a decent digital camera!

    nepenthes_ak --> It sure looks like you have an eye for composition and lighting, judging from the two macro shots you have posted so far. Care to share any thoughts/techniques? How do you plan a photo? How do you try to exploit the subject of your photo?

    Best wishes--

    Basicaly What I do is Turn out the lights (It should be a fairly dark or at night) And have 1 light Above the Plant in a position (or what ever) and shoot.

    I really dont try to hard to get a great photo. I just think what a good photo should look like, And Take about 20-30 shots of the shot I like, and pick the best one, I would say its about a 15 bad to 1 good ratio , Some times I dont get a good one at all and give up.

    Ive tried Black cloths and paper, But its not the natural Dark I like and that you see in the photos that I took up their

    Cheers

    Now keep practicing until you only need to take one shot.
