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.

Close up pictures


For the jewelry shots you will need an accessory telephoto lens with a macro feature OR a close-up filter set. The lens will give you more features, but the filters will be the less expensive option. The lens should also help with your video shots. I have a Z650, and I use both options - depending on the situation. eBay is a good cost-effective source for these accessories.

Settings for dance/on stage action shots with no flash and low li


If there isn't good lighting on the stage (nevermind the auditorium), your 18-135mm lens does not have enough light-gathering ability for action shots, especially when you zoom in for that close-up of your daughter. Even at the highest ISO speed setting, you would likely have shutter speeds longer than 1/30 second, too slow to avoid camera shake and certainly too slow to freeze action. While a dreamy motion blur can make a nice impressionistic effect, I'm sure you want to recognize your daughter.

Sorry to say that the only solution for low-light, no-flash shots is to spend money on a fast lens. Either that or sneak in beforehand and put high-wattage lamps in the stage lights. The best value is the Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D lens available new with full warranty at B&H Photo (bhphotovideo.com) for $134.95 with free shipping. This lens gets highest marks in every professional review, and it's a huge value at that price. Or, if price is no object, go for the 50mm f/1.4D at $350. These are both prime lenses, not zoom, so you will want to get there early so you can choose your seat for the best view close to the stage.

Just need specific info on lens to buy


melody,
nice camera, the 28mm to 80mm lens that came with the camera is a fine light weight lens. if you go to a 200mm or 300mm lens weight might be a problem as the lens mount on the N55 is plastic. not a problem with 28 - 80mm. i would look fore a light 200mm lens. not necessarily nikon

Poor focus


Are you using a DX lens. Do you know if you have the camera's auto focus set to AF (auto focus) or M (manual)? There are many things that effect the focus and as an added note, any shots over 1/60 shutter speed in normal light should be in focus without the need of a tripod.

I shoot a D80 and a D70 and I have excellent results and very clear pictures, I'd be will to bet that either your lens is incompatible with the camera or it's just a setting. I'd be happy to help if you could give more info to your settings.

D-60 Digital SLR Nikon camera


where you standing very close to him?
the camera comes with a 18 - 55 lens. at 55 it is ruffly a three time magnification of what you see with the human eye. you need turn the lens to the right when you are looking through the camera to have the image magnified. If that still doesnt get you close enough then you are going to want to buy another lens. or you can also crop the photo but how much you can crop depend on how big of a picture you want to print.
