I had some time to shoot a few macros today. The challenge today though was low light and a bit of wind… not good for macro photography! I decided to crank up my ISO to speed up the shutter and avoid motion blur. I went as high as 5000 ISO! I’m still amazed at the low noise levels of the D600.
I decided to test out my new Nikon D600 with some macro photography. I don’t have an actual macro lens so instead I use Kenko extension tubes. For these shots I stacked the 36mm and 20mm and shot with my Sigma 70-200 F2.8. This was my first time to use the 70-200 for macros. I love it! Firs the zoom lets me shoot macro without being right on top of the subject which is quite nice. Also, the D600 allows me to shoot a high ISO to speed up the shutter so I don’t get motion blur without much noise.
