My (cheap) Macro Photography Setup
Just wanted to show how I do my macro shots using my beloved Kamiko (my Nikon D90).
I am using a reverse ring mounted on an 18-55mm kit lens plus a styro plate to diffuse the pop-up flash. The toothpick you are seeing is to partially open up the aperture ring because in this setup, IT IS ALL MANUAL!!! hehehe.
I’ll update this post next time to show you the step by step procedure on how I do this setup.
Meanwhile, here are some sample shots using this cheap setup.
