Well I figured I would stay in and work with my macro adapter today and work on my basic Manual Mode Skills. I think I took everything people have been telling me about my ISO settings etc and put it to good use.

I also want to eventually get a good macro lens the 100mm cost as much as my kit so I may just go with a good 40MM though I know nothing about macro lenses

TY everyone for all your feedback it is helping me set up for my low light conditions.

First Shot I played around wanted to do water drops but didnt realize had to be on top the water with the macro adapter so thats later.

I tried it out on my dirty hand from work lol it was hard holding camera still and pointing at my other hand.

Camera: Nikon D3500 DSLR

I really liked it and was hard focusing with my 1 finger while holding camera and shooting at my hand.

So I decided to set up an old shell I got from somewhere a few hundred years ago while on vacation.

These look good. For getting a true macro lens that goes to 1:1 you might consider getting an old discontinued model. They will cost considerably less while still having very good glass.
