I got inspired to play around with macro photography so I acquired some inexpensive extension tubes and a cheap ring light. The process is very different. Forget handheld. A tripod is the only way. The first interesting area that I need to get a handle on is depth-of-field. It wants to be paper thin. Focus seems to be more about dollying (moving forward and backward) than about fiddling with the focus ring. There is a lot to learn here. Fun stuff!
