A few months ago I bought my first macro lens. Several months before that I had discovered and met The Lens Doctor and was regularly reading his eBay store updates, looking for something I could use with my Nikon (his is mostly a Canon shop). Finally, the opportunity came: a refurbished Tamron SP90mm macro, modified with Eddie’s fluid variable aperture for easier use with video. It’s a gorgeous piece of hardware, and produces lovely contrast and lush, dreamy bokeh. Here are some shots I’ve taken with it.
