Stuck in Macro mode… Still 75-150mm E Series. Still reversed. Still on 49mm extension. This time: ISO400, 1/8th, f/11.
I’m not entirely satisfied with this, but oh well. It’s going to be hard to get into a shooting mode after 9 hours at work and traffic, but I will find a way! Macro, again (though I did take the 50mm outside and wandered around for a bit, with no usable results). And again with […]
D7000, 50mm 1.8 – ISO 100, f/ 1.8, 1/160. Lit with minimal ambient light and my new toy, a hacked-together soft box-type-thing. Fun times. Had I turned my head a bit more, or had the box aimed more at my face, I would’ve gotten some nice reflections in my glasses. This is something to keep […]

I looked down, and it was just laying there, perhaps left over from July 4th celebrations in the neighborhood, though how it escaped leaf blowers, vacuum cleaners, and my keen vision I’ll never know… Anyways, I thought it […]
I was feeling a bit off after work today, so I decided to plop some Airborne and shoot the bubbles right quick. I’m still playing with the extension tubes and macro reverse ring on the 75-150. Good times. I need to stop down the aperture quite a bit: this was shot at 3.5, and the […]
And so begins the 365 Project. I received a set of extension tubes and a macro reverse ring in the mail today, so what better time to start the 365? For this image, I used the 75-150mm f/3.5 E Series, reversed, and attached to 49mm worth of extension tubes. The subject is a set of […]
