It is really hard to use a reversed 50mm on 50mm worth of extensions as a walkaround lens when the wind is gusting.

I think I’ll try just the 50 tomorrow, sans extension tubes, and see if I can get the bee and bug shots I missed today.

And I’m finding that music helps me focus on shooting and walking, and gives me less opportunity to worry, as long as the beat is danceable and the lyrics are catchy. Today was the first 40 minutes-ish of Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto. I make no apologies: I’m a big Brian Eno fan…

D7000. Vivitar 50mm f/1.8 (Cosina), reversed, and stacked on 50mm extension. ISO400, 1/2000th (AP mode), f/1.8, -1EV. Absolutely no post processing, beyond Aperture’s default RAW conversion.
