    This video is great! One of my main inspirations to get into macro photography a year ago. Check my channel for tips on high magnification macro photography.

    Something I've often noticed when watching these "B and H" videos. That the audience always look cold, sitting with their coats on……..can you not put some heating in there ???But you always give great tutorials. Thanks for sharing.  lolwit

    OMG! I have paid for courses that dont nearly explain as well! I have been struggling with macros for years, my prefered photography. This guy has helped alot and im only halfway done with the video!

    No wait, @34:00 he is talking about ratio. A 50mm lens with a 50mm extension tube doesn't give you a 1:1 ratio, but a ratio above 1:1, since the lens itself has a magnification, too. The crop factor plays a role, too, because it "magnifies" everything by this factor, for example 1.5x on a Nikon, 1.6x on a Canon and so on. So either I totally misunderstood ratio or this guy is totally wrong…

    If you`re a cheapskate, just shoot through your "helping hands" magnifying glass if you have one of those little suckers handy. I did and it worked pretty darn good for stationary shooting. In fact i`ve taken pictures through my binoculars with great results. And that was using my phone. Of course that was before i got into photography and got a proper DSLR camera. I`m considering obtaining a macro lense but the magnification ratios aren`t all that magnificent to me. Still trying to work out how this little mystery works. I am gonna need something that will take really good close up pictures of stuff the size of a small stamp and be able to reveal a high level of detail. Any suggestions i`m all ears nose and eyes.

    I have been doing macro photography for about 50 years. I started with a 4X5-inch view camera for Industrial Photography. This is the best intro lecture and slide show I have seen to date. Some very good points. Couple of things he could add, but if you use the ideas he presents, you will do very well. The digital camera has sure made it a lot simpler than it was.

    I have serious hate issues with Photoshop. It drives me cucking fazy. I watch hours of tutorials on the Net but when I click the same things they click 9 times out of ten I get either nothing happening or a completely different thing happening to what I see on the screen. I HATE the crappy fucking thing! Plus, it needs a shit load of memory to do anything so already it is only aimed at people with shed loads of cash to buy expensive computers with. The rest of us can fuck off it seems.

    I use 31mm extension on a 50 – 250mm canon lense, works BEAUTIFUL, especially with autofocus, and if you really wanna get grimmy, you can adjust the settings in the camera option to focus how you want using electronic extension tubes, so you dont have to move in and out all the time. The problem with that is the camera will decide what to focus on, so most of the time the portion of your subject will be out of focus because the camera doesn't know what your trying to focus on.

    I can't thank B&H and its presenters enough for these videos. I

    I have spent every photo dollar I have had for 30 years at B&H. You have proven my choice to be correct. I live 200 miles from the nearest airport that.could get me to New York. Thanks to you, I don't drive that road much.
