  1. (Alan Radley) I've just come back to these Macro videos, having just bought myself a Sigma 105mm.
    I'm not sure what results I was expecting, but I thought I was doing something wrong. Now I've seen the light, so to speak 🙂
    As you say, a tripod is essential when close in with a large aperture, as the depth of field is tiny in the extreme.
    I was photographing a lapel badge (3/4" long) at f5 , and could only get half in focus. Going to f40 and upping the ISO. I could just about get it all in focus……Thanks Mike !
    P.S It said f40 in the camera 🙂

  2. I'm just a beginner so i brought a Canon EOS 1100D with EF-S 18-55mm macro it was the kit lens. When i want to upgrade camera been looking at nikon 7200 which is 1200 AUD i'm looking for a good macro lens i only want to spend around $600 – $700 on lens Or if there better camera please let me know i don't want to spend more than 1300 on a camera

  3. Excellent videos Mike. You also have an really good cameraman that follows every move just perfectly and close-up – it makes all the difference for a good video (maybe he deserves a raise?)

  4. Hi Mike, I'm just getting into macro photography at the moment, is there an ideal aperture to use when you're 5 inches away from the flower/food and want to ensure that your subject is in focus and the background is blurred? great video btw!

  5. Hello i from Italy,great Vine balsamic from Modena!!! Thanks, and Thank You for video,i am in my first shoot in Macro. I have Sigma 105 and Nikon D750. Ciao.

  6. Hi Mike, checking in from across the pond. Came across your videos and you are a Godsend to us novice shutterbugs. Great video series on Marco. But my question to you is; "What model tripod do you have in your videos?" It looks very very solid and I love the quick release. I imagine I'll have to dole out about $300- $500 for this but I'm just curious. The tripod I have is nice & light and I love the swivel head but the legs are flimsy. Thanks for responding.
