Flowers in Singapore. Trying out my new Vitacon Macro Lens.

In 2013, I bought my first good camera, a Nikon D7100 with AF-S Nikkor 18-200 mm lens. After about 1,5 years I still do not know the ins and outs of the camera but learned a few things. The two most frequent situations I would like to improve were Macro photography and food pictures. In Singapore, we bought a Vitacon combination Lens (Macro and 72mm wide angle) which improves both types of photography.

The pictures below show examples of shots taken with the macro lens. When taking the pictures you need to stay still and come really close to your subject. Taking normal pictures with this lens is impossible. We are pleased with the results.

In 2013, kocht ik mijn eerste goede camera, een Nikon D7100 met AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm lens. Na ongeveer 1,5 jaar ken ik nog niet alle mogelijkheden van de camera maar leerde toch wel wat bij. De meest frequente situaties waar ik in wilde verbeteren waren macro fotografie en gastronomie foto’s. In Singapore hebben we een Vitacon combinatie lens (Macro en 72mm breed hoek) gekocht die beide soorten fotografie kan verbeteren. 

De foto’s hieronder tonen enkele voorbeelden van kiekjes getrokken met de macro lens. Als je de foto’s trekt dien je heel dicht bij het onderwerp te zijn en je camera stil te houden. Normale foto’s kan je echter niet met deze lens trekken. We zijn tevreden met het resultaat.

  8. Love this new lens that you have gotten! It really does a great job with the macro shots. My favorite macro lens is my nikon 105mm , and have used extenders at times with which you can go reallly macro. Are you shooting manual on your 7100. It is a bit challenging at first , but well worth it!
