I cannot make macro photography with a macro conversion lens. The view in viewfinder remained blurred and the shutter wont release.

Also, where is the macro setup on the 18-55mm VR lens?

Help me guys, I am Newbie at macro photography, dont know what I am doing but it is an area of photo I want to get in.

At the macro level, the focus ring controls the magnification and moving the camera changes the focus.

When using a tripod you can use a focusing rail to achieve a focused image.

Thank you

How about the other question, how to set up macro on Nikkor 18-55 VR lens? is there a switch or a menu option?

It is not listed as Nikon Macro Lens. Nikon macro lens are prime (a fixed focal length) and have a near/far focus switch.

Macro shots are different than close-up. In a macro shot you will see the stamen and pollen of a flower but the bloom. Macro will have a 2:1 or smaller reprocution ratio. In a close-up you will see the entire flower and have a a much smaller reproduction ratio like 1/2:1.

You might want to look at the Micro, Macro & Close-up forum.

When you adjust the telephoto ring on the 18-55 you will note as you go to the closest view the the lens extends.
But if you run it the opposite direction you will note that the lens retracts to a point. Then it will extend again. a short distance.
This is the Macro lens setting, at the point it begins to extend again.
