Mine too, or at least a 1:2 to even be thought of as close to macro. But I will not claim to be any kind of expert. I did study art in college, but my study of photography has been primarily through youtube videos like the ones B&H puts out, LOL. I agree there! I do like photoing plants in situ... but it's cold and dead outside now. Alas, I don't really have the room or the cat wrangling skills to set up a big enough light box to do that other kind of image. And... no one wants to see my groady grow table, lol, so in situ is out for now.
