Today was my first day outside with my new Nikon!
I decided to try my multipurpose lens first, even though I am dying to get into the nitty gritty of Macro photography with my 1:1 Macro lens. I have realised that I need an aditional piece of kit for me to get the macro shots right, a ring flash, so I will pop out and buy one later in the week. I think they are about £20, so not that expensive, but they do make all the difference.
Here are a few macro shots using my 18 - 300mm Lens and I used the Macro Auto setting on the Nikon D5300. I haven't quite got to grips with all the manual settings yet, so the auto settings are handy. I also took the shots freehand without a tripod. I am guessing if I had used a tripod, the images would have been more crisp.
Don't forget to click the images for the full screen effects :)
For my first attempt at Macro, I am quite pleased with the results! I know it is just an ugly fly, but he was the only bug happy to pose for me today :)
These images are my own, taken with my Nikon D5300 and edited using PhotoScape software, which you can find free online.
