Macro Photography Thread


Hey guys I've noticed there has been a little bit more interest in macro photography lately so I figured we should start a thread about it!
Feel free to post pictures, tips, tricks, tutorials anything related to macro photography aquarium related or not.

I'm currently using a Nikon D5200, 70-300mm nikkor lens, Meike Macro LED ring light, proline tripod, neewer extension tubes, and an amazon.com macro slider.

Very nice. I might like macro even more than I like full shots of established, manicured show tanks

Some of my non aquatic macros. I've used several types of macro lenses over the years including extension tubes, which is all I have now. My favorite being the Tamron 90mm Macro 2.8.

Algae Beater, is that a neon green tetra by chance (2nd pic from top)? Limited knowledge here but love the look of it (similar look/size to what I'm looking for) and would be glad to research this one if you have the name(s), common and/or scientific. Great pics and thread. Thanks.

Got links to some good tubes? I've never used them, just hear the term tossed around. I love my Nikkor 105mm, but sometimes you want to get even closer...
