This is my very first photo post in the macro forum and my very first attempt at macro photos. I've always been interested in close-up and macros for some time now. Even before having a SLR.
I got my very first own macro lens this morning. A Sigma 105mm F/2.8 DG Macro. Just a little help too while I'm here posting. I thought with these macro lenses you could get close ups without actually being close kwim? I was quite close with this picture and any advice would be nice on getting the same effects without being near. I'd like to do bug ones and don't want to be on top of them, so to speak
Thanks for reading. C&C welcome. I need to learn.
