I am so pumped to learn how to use my new toy, my Nikon 105mm f/2.8 Macro Lens! I got it Friday and I played around a little today trying to figure things out. I liked it both as a portrait lens and a true macro. For portraits, it gives me incredible definition and clarity in skin texture and eyelashes! For macro I’ve noticed it magnifies things that I did not notice to my naked eye. In the crayon shots I never realized there was waxy little hairs on crayons…so cool!
I will be taking a Macro class through Clickin Moms for the month of February. I’ll try to post my favorites images from the class here. I am hoping I can produce some that I can be proud of and possibly use for my portfolio. Wish me luck! Here’s some shots I took with my macro lens today.
