That’s a great closeup of your cat, I also play around with macro shots, but mainly for my wife’s jewellery with a Nikon D50 and Tamron 90mm lens. Did you use a flash as cats eye seems to lose have lost some detail.

@Jaffer: Ah, but that is what macro is for. 🙂 Thanks!

@Khaled: I probably did use flash, although I know I shouldn’t. I could use some tips on jewelery macro photography though, as that is pretty tricky.

@Ben: Thanks. 🙂

A really beautiful picture and a great closeup of your cat, I also play around with macro shots, but mainly for my wife’s jewelery with a Nikon D50 and Tamron 90mm lens.

@Brian: Macro photography opened the door to all new photo opportunities for me. There are little, beautiful details everywhere.

@Sheryl: I take allergy medicine often. I’m sure I’m allergic to them, but I’m allergic to the outdoors, and since I can’t avoid that, I figure, why avoid the pets? I’ll do a search for tutorials… that sounds like a good way to get tips, as I’m just starting out.

@TestKing: I just started with jewelry recently. I took our wedding jewelry out to the park, and did some placement on trees, our favorite bench, etc. I can really only get good shots with outdoor lighting so far. 🙂

I must admit your photography is excellent. I kept a cat, that is so cute, in my rent house. While one day, she was pressed by the door. You know, I am so sad. Each time I see a cat, I can not help thinking of she.
