How many extension rings did you use for this photo? I hesitated between the purchase of extension tubes or a macro lens itself. I could borrow the macro lens of my brother in law (Tamron 90mm). This pleased me so much that I have purchased AF-s. Nikon 85mm

Am I missing something here?
Use a macro lens and correct the colours in post.
Too easy.

Dale,

Below are the different options to get started on macro photography.

1. use close up filters – these are essentially magnifying glasses . cheapest but not necessarily the best. can’t get to 1:1 macro.

2. Buy an adapter that will allow you to reverse fit your lens allowing you to focus very close

3. Use an extension tube or a set of tubes to reduce your minimum focusing distance.

4. Buy a dedicated macro lens.

option 4 will probably give you the best results, but then the hollow extension tubes with full auto aperture adjustment costs only US$ 160 and is a cost effective option to get into macro photography.
