Hey guys, I've recently got myself a new Nikon D5100 with 18-55mm & 55-300mm Nikkor lenses. I am looking to do some macro photography of flowers and insects and have noticed that neither of my lenses can give me the close up I am looking for. Am I doing something wrong or do i need to get some special lenses for macro photography?
I was looking into extension tubes for the 18-55mm but I don't really know if it will work or what exactly it does.
I also read up on reversing the lenses and found i needed a mount for the lenses.
I wanted to know if anyone has tried this and found that it worked or not or what ever.
Thanks in advance!
