Use of built-in flash will result in shadowing. Please use an external flash.

What should i buy ? Lense or Flash for DSLR?

I would say it depends on the type of photography you intend to do.

Obviously, you're going to need at least one lens, whereas you can take photos without a flash at all. If you're doing landscape photography during the day, you won't have much need for a flash. If you're doing studio photography, you're going to need a flash or other source of light.

A pin hole lens cover for macro photography

Was this an attachment on the front of a lens, or simply a pinhole in place of a lens?

In order to get close to the subject, you need to be able to focus close. If you're using one of the kit lenses, you won't be able to get much closer than a foot or two.

In order of decreasing cost:
  • Special macro lenses are designed to focus closer, as close as a couple of inches, but they cost more.
  • Extension tubes fit between the camera and other lenses, allowing the lens to focus closer.
  • Close-up adapters fit in front of the lens, also allowing closer focus.
One major consideration with any type of close-up photography is lighting. Having the camera close to the subject tends to block out light. Two possible ways around this are: a tripod or other support, and an additional light source such as an external flash unit.

Best settings for close up

That depends. A true macro lens allows you to get a 1:1 reproduction ratio; most manufacturers call a lens "macro" if it allows 1:4 or so. Some lenses work better for close work if you reverse them, using a reverse adaptor to put the nose of the lens onto the mount. Bellows and extension rings behind the lens will give you sharper results than close-up adaptors that screw onto the front of the lens.

The focal length will affect perspective; to get the same image size with a wide angle lens, you'll have to get closer, wihch will make the background seem smaller and farther away. You don't have to get as close with a longer lens, which will make the background seem larger and closer.

The aperture affects depth-of-field. If you're photographing something flat, like a piece of paper, you don't need much DoF. If you're photographing something three-dimensional, you'll need more DoF.

The exposure mode might depend on the lighting conditions and your personal preferences. I tend to do most of my close-up work in Manual. I also tend to focus manually, for better control.

There's no one set of "best" settings for close-up photography, any more than there's a set of "best" settings for any other type of photography.

Night shots

Hey matty reps,
You are attempting one of the most challenging types of photography there is, because you are combing nighttime photography and action photography. If you want to stop the action you normally would be using the highest shutter speed possible, but since you are trying to take nighttime action photographs I would rely on a flash since the flash duration in essence becomes your shutter speed. I would definitely use a hotshoe mounted flash because the built in flash will most likely not be powerful enough for your needs. I would have the camera set to aperture priority so I could control the depth of field, because the smaller the aperture the larger depth of field you will have and the less likely your subject will be out of focus. If you are attempting natural light nighttime action photography you will definitely need a very fast film speed such as 3200 speed film which will provide significant loss of image quality. You will also need a very fast lens meaning a lens with an aperture of at least f2.8 or larger, and your camera in this scenario should be set to shutter priority so you can set the camera to the fastest shutter speed possible but this will present focusing issues. In both scenarios I would have the AF system set to continuous so the camera doesn't require you to achieve focus to be able to trip the shutter. As in all challenging photography situations more photos are better than less, because you should have more failed photos than successful. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Trouble focusing with sigma 70-300 DL macro super lens

It will not focus on anything closer than 5 feet.

(From Sigma lens literature)
Capable of macro photography, this lens has a 1:2 maximum close-up magnification at the 300 mm focal length. It's the ideal high performance lens for portraits, sports photography, nature photography, and other types of photography that frequently use the telephoto range. It also has a switch for changeover to macro photography at focal lengths between 200mm and 300mm with a maximum close-up magnification from 1:2.9 to 1:2. The minimum focusing distance is 1.5m / 59 in. at all zoom settings.

Good book for a beginner?

have you set it to macro mode? (little flower icon on the right cursor) this function will allow you to get within about 2cm of the subject, however do not use the zoom as the lens cannot focus close enough. To get results any closer you will be looking at an slr and a budget on a few thousand! If enabling macro and not using zoom to allow the lens to focus doesn't get you close enough in you can always enlarge and crop images. have a look on i've taken some macros of flowers and bugs, this camera can capture the hairs on an ants back or the individual lenses of a flys compound lens eye.

persevere with this camera, for a very small budget you will get amazing results, ISO refers to the speed of 'film', it comes from the dark old ages of 35mm film cameras. Basically a low ISO is the lowest sensitivity to light and gives the best image quality, however as the ccd is less responsive to the light the camera holds the shutter open for longer. The higher the ISO the more sensitive the ccd but the greater the noise and lower the quality of picture.

Books, try looking for more photography orientated books and less digital camera based books. An upto date photography book will tell you all the technical information about how to take a good picture for any given senario.

if you would like any further advice email me (address on the blogspot)
