Folks

First post on a recently discovered forum, so where do I start?

I've had the photo bug since the 80's, went digital about 9 years ago and have dabbled in a number of genres over the years. Macro is one area I've dipped my toe into recently, exploring the capabilities of my existing zoom lenses with a "macro" capability and a set of cheap extension tubes.

I finally have the change to take the next step, pick up a couple of gadgets to aid me along the way and maybe have a desktop studio setup.

I'm always on the lookout for new ideas, love "repurposing" old junk into a new use (never throw anything away there is a chance it could be useful) and am looking forward to the challenge.

Oh the nom de plume comes from the days when I worked on an aircraft flight line waving at pilots, but aircraft don't come that small so don't expect to see images of them....

Andy

Hi there Andy,
Welcome aboard Very Happy
This is a great forum, I´ve learned a lot from the amazing members.
No stupid questions, only questions.
Where to start? Hmm, I think browsing around and look for interesting things to photograph, get the inspiration from other members...
Don´t be afraid to post images and ask for comments.

Looking forward to see some sharings from you

Andy, welcome aboard!

Since you're into repurposing stuff, be sure to take a look at http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=55311#55311 and follow the links therein.

I think this forum shows more DIY projects than your average arts and crafts convention.
