Resulting from corona lockdown, I might prefer to strive macro images. I’ve two lenses (18–55 and 35 f/1.8) and a Nikon D5300. As I at present do not need the cash to purchase an actual macro lens, I discovered three cheaper methods:
Reverse Ring adapters, extension tubes, and macro filters. I thought of constructing my very own extension tube (I discovered this YouTube tutorial), however the issue is that my lenses haven’t got guide aperture management. Does that imply that I am fastened to the smallest aperture? I discovered some type of change on the lens that allows you to management the aperture, however will probably be hidden contained in the extension tube?
Any suggestions? I could not discover “actual” extension tubes with electrical contacts for Nikon, at leat not in my worth vary. I am additionally conscious that reverse ring adapters and macro filters exist, however I made a decision to stay to extension tubes because of the rear factor uncovered with reversed lens and decrease picture high quality with filters.
