Places to Shoot

Posted: September 22, 2015 in Uncategorized

I was in Minnetonka, MN presenting one of my macro workshops and after the workshop ended on Sunday, I visited a great place to shoot.  It’s the Minnesota Arboretum.  I got some really nice images and if you ever get to the area it offers a lot of opportunities for a macro photographer.

    love your work….now here a few questions from who you might call a “pest”…..I’m looking for some new equipment…what are your most used camera body and lens…please help me! Many thanks, Liz

      Any DSLR is good for macro, and the lens I use for 95% of my images is the Tamron 16-300. The other 5% I use the Tamron 90mm macro.

    work….you have responded to my questions but email problems make me ask you again……I’ve been using Nikon camera and lenses…what do you recommend for me to upgrade in Nikon equipment many thanks, Liz

    • Mike Moats says:

      What ever Nikon you have is fine for macro. My most successful image was shot in 2004 with a fuji S5 camera which was generations ago in the digital world, so any DSLR you have today will be fine for macro. The lens I recommend is the Tamron 16-300 and the Tamron 90mm macro.
