Macro attempt

Recommended Posts

Wanted to dabble with some Macro photography , so I bought some extention tubes vs an actual macro lens and the results are pretty darn cool

 

That little bud was about 1/16" in diameter

Insects are what i thought of when i decided to try it out. They are more difficult than i had thought and have yet to get a good tight shot. They dont stand still with a camera lens an inch from their face lol

I did a lot of macro back in the film days, Nikon with an 55mm. Micro Nikkor and either bellows or extension tubes. I would put the insects in the fridge for a while to sedate them down and shoot them in a setup condition like on a twig or something from their natural with a colour backdrop and a main and fill in flash to stop action and use a small aperture to increase depth of field.

Hahaha......notice i left the name of the flower off the thread :) The only thing i can tell the difference between, is fish species :)
