    so i set up a ghetto macro-esque station in my kitchen and tried to shoot water droplets. i spent about 20 min with the tripod and kept missing the darn things haha. then i got fed up and took the camera off the tripod. so i was also trying to manual focus (just got my camera on xmas lol) i wish i had a macro lens for this kind of stuff. im using my d40 with kit lens. C&C welcome!

    Not too bad. If you haven't seen this video I would recommend that you check it out. I found it very informative. GL

    Nice shot, I like it!

    I used my canon 500d close up lens on my 55-200mm AF-S VR lens when I did it, worked great. I am going to try it again with some poster board tonight, did you use on camera flash?
