Macro Filter Kit

Macro Filter Kit
Macro photography …?

Ok, so I bought a Nikon D80 not long ago (6 months) and have been running with the kit lenses, they are nice for general use but I want to get into macro photography to take pictures of insects, plants, etc. I have some questions but I'm not that understanding … Why, I totally do not understand this part. Do I want a 1:1 or 1:2, or what? And what do they mean? The size of the lens. The goal I want, says its a 135mm, does this mean that is always set to 135 mm and can not zoom in and out? And what do I filter my goal to approach the subject. what would cause leaks my sharper image? And thanks for all the input, any further advice is greatly appreciated. This is a link to the lens you plan to buy .. http://www.amazon.com/Sigma-105mm-Medium-Telephoto-Cameras/dp/B0002P19XK/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1236830641&sr=8-2 105mm is a pity to mix up lol … macro said it though.

The 135 mm is not macro shot. When a 135 mm lens, said that means that is NOT a zoom lens. Its focal length is 135 mm … only. Look at f/2.8 macro 60 or 105 mm f/2.8 VR macro. They are expensive … you may want to buy a good set of 52 mm diopters. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/88779-REG/Hoya_520210_52mm_Close_up_Kit_1_2_4_.html A quick primer on the growth rates: 1:1 means that the sensor is 1 inch long, the goal will be able to shoot at an object 1 inch and fill the frame of the image. 1:2 means that if the sensor is 1 inch long, the goal will be able to photograph an object of 2 inches and fill the frame.
