    *Sigh* I bought an SB-600 the other day, and I figured I would give it a go with my Tamron 90mm F2.8macro. It worked....better than I was getting without the flash. I was shooting at f/16 successfully. Anyway, these are better than what I have previously done with this lens. Anyway, give me some tips on making it better. Also, I was shooting handheld, and I dont think I would benefit from a tripod because the actual web was swaying in the wind, not so much my hand

    Cool angle on the first one but kinda blurry. The fourth one is what I like best.

    Question. I thought macro lens meant something below 18mm. I know macro is a close up. I guess it can be 18mm+, just as long as its sharp when I want a close-up pic?

    Yea, this lens, along with (what I am told) most 1:1 macros there is a very small DOF, these were all shot at f/16 and it was still shallow.

    As far as focal length goes, I believe longer is better for macro. When I asked about it here, the 90mm was the widest one that was recommended.
