I was using a D300 when I wrote that and the live view procedure is slightly different on the D7000, but being able to zoom in 100% to focus is a real advantage to pin-point the actual part you want perfectly sharp. Trying to focus using auto-focus is difficult because the lens keeps searching, so what is in focus is hit and miss.
Macro photography is not easy at first but I found persistence was worthwhile. The main problem is getting the DOF you want. I've been experimenting with selective focus for a while now so there is some "artful" o-o-f. (note the o-o-f on this image at f18!!)

When you're using small apertures you inevitably have a slow shutter speed so every movement will show up. Also a bright overcast day is better than sunlight. Almost all my true macros are done indoors.
Everlasting (2017/06/03 20:15:31): Well it wasn't a good start after all, it was cloudy no light, the gorilla pod was useless and I couldn't work out the settings. Anyway, re-read the link that you posted and tried a couple of shots back here at home. Think I have a better idea of how to do it, so if the light is good tomorrow back out to the field, but this time with the tripod and try again. If at first you don't succeed ............
Thanks
feather (2017/06/03 08:19:00): PS The main problems you get with a normal lens is you can't get close enough to focus and you can't get really small apertures.

feather (2017/06/03 08:16:45): I probably missed you now, for my advice. With macro the DOF is always very shallow, as the closer you get, the DOf decreases. Have a read of the forum post I did where I try to explain that. (see my reply to Murat for the link.)
Good luck. Let me know how you get on.
Thank you for the fave!
