It was such a beautiful afternoon, I wanted to go for a photowalk around beautiful Old East Dallas. Alas, my (not quite so mild as I make out, but still undiagnosed) agoraphobia got the better of me before I even got out of the apartment complex. Oh well. There was some nice light streaming through […]
Three guesses on what this is. Here’s a hint: It’s not extraterrestrial, but it’s also completely unnatural. Give up? Ha! Back to the Macro Rig: 75-150mm f/3.5 E Series, Reversed, & Extended by 49mm. ISO100, 6 seconds, f/16.
… But I didn’t miss them! Sigma 30mm 1.4, at 1.4, ISO100, 1.640th (chosen by the D7000).
And we have a new entry into the Macro family! Who is it? It’s the 36-72 f/3.5 E Series!

Same rig: 75-150 f/3.5 E Series, reversed, and extended by 49mm. ISO 100, 2 seconds, f/11 (maybe f/22 […]
One of these days I’ll run out of things to shoot with the macro rig. When that happens, I’ll probably turn to cats, then maybe to self portraits, then maybe to momento mori, and then, maybe, just maybe, I’ll have to go outside… 75-150mm f/3.5 Series E, reversed, with 49mm extension. ISO400, 1/40th, f/3.5.
