Nope, as much as a I want a macro lens, I don't really neeeeeed one. The 24-70 gets to 1:3, which I find to be close enough for my purposes. I want a macro lens for my fish pics, but its really not something I pressingly need business wise just yet. Eventually for sure, just have other more pressing business expenses to handle first

TickleMyElmo Thought I'd share a different take on a self portrait! Rest of the fish pics are on the way soon....figured I would try the SB-910 out tonight instead of the usual SB-600, not that it makes much difference with fish pics lol...

Heh, you could definitely say that. I am a pro photographer though, so I should be able to get nice results more easily than someone that just started, so don't give me too much credit
Yep, thanks that's what I was looking for if you used any modifiers on the flash or other equipment.

Sorry I'm a little late, but thanks! I love the black background too, really makes everything pop and adds mystery like you said

I do add a little contrast, but its mostly from the off camera flash being above the tank. I used matte black paint for the background as well, since I didn't want any reflections from the flash going off...

The camera isnt so important, I could take the same pics with a D90, as far as the skills, depends how much to airmail myself to Washington
