  1. Hey there, have you tried “MagicSFXphoto” (just do a Google search for it…)? On their website you can watch a nice free video featuring the best way to create better photos. It made it possible for Joe to shoot pictures that leave you with a jaw-dropping-effect whenever you look at them. Perhaps it will help you too.

    Its the max sync speed of the Camera, not the flash (its a mechanical thing), and typically limited to 1/200, or 1/250 & yes it is a problem. The speed of the flash however is very, very quick. You might want to check out my Speedlite Crash Course DVD because it explains everything. One workaround is to use High Speed Sync, but this will have to be on the camera, or triggered as a slave. Thanks

  5. Well, if the max sync speed with the flash is 160th of a second it’s slightly a problem, don’t you think?
    Not only that the animal or bug might move and I might move so the image will be motion blurred, but also when I’m shooting protraits I can’t raise it up.
    Isn’t there another soloution?
    Thanks!

  6. Thank you Michael for the tips. An answer, how is it the right way to use the extension tubes? Could you explain with minors details? Thank you so much. Huges from Brazil

    You are shooting faster than your max sync speed, typically 1/200. Try shooting at 1/160 and see what happens.

  8. Hi,
    It’s about the fifth time that I shoot macro with a flash on high power pretty close to the lens, and HALF of the frame is black. There is more then enough light, why is this happening?

    When is the good time for us to utilize the f/2.8 for macro photography? Any sample of macro photos taken at f/2.8?

  10. Thank you for such simple, basic, easy to understand info. I am BRAND NEW to this and this clip helps me to focus ( no pun intended). What is ISO?

  11. Im with you here buddy.

    I´m sure you will like it!

  13. This is a guaranteed chance that dust will get into the DSLR lens but flipping the lens around works too :D, I think they sell these types of extension tubes.

    Its because ur in camera metering is not adjusting to your low light situation. If you have a camera with TTL metering system, it will adjust automatically and u wont notice any difference. One thing you can do is increase your exposure compensation 2-3 notch up. and as michael said, use a good light source :). increasing ISO is not a good idea as u might end up with high noise

  15. hi michael total newbie question…i have a Nikon d60 and have a simga 70-300m F4-5.6 DG macro lens, is it possible to take close up photos with this set up? when i say close up subjects like small insects or rain drops on a leaf. if so can you give me a few pointers. thanks

  16. Today’s DSLRs are not expensive anymore. You can get a decent used DSLR for about $200-$300 nowadays and purchase extension tubes and a 50mm lens. All that would cost you less than $500.

    well i did all that but nothing happens

    not enough light! You need a LONG shutter speed or bump up your ISO or shoot outside on a sunny day

    michael can u please tell me why is my photo all black when i put extension tubes(not kenko) on my nikon 105mm macro lens

  22. On my nikon micro 105mm i can get great sharpness and suficient dof when close to 1.1scale at F22.
    Higher then that i dont whant to.
    Flash helps alot with shutter speeds and fill the shadows at day time.
    If the ligh is to bright and u want to use the flash and the speed comes over 1125 – 1200 i usualy use ND filters to bring some stops of light down.

  23. Let us share the resources about photograph with each other
