Someone mentioned my eyes earlier on today and I had a moment spare so though it might be fun to try for a decent image of my Iris. Used the 50mm 1.8 @ f2.8, on camera flash and a 12mm Kenko Extension tube. Was harder to focus (with the tube on) but didn’t need to crop so harshly.
If that’s true, then my windows need cleaning or I have no soul. This was another one of those, what shall I do now moments. So I attached the nifty fifty to the 30D, stuck in 24mm of extension tubes and wobbled back and forth in front of the lens with the camera remote in hand. Out of 10 or so shots, this one was the only one nearly in focus.
I guess I’ll be getting bored with the macro shots shortly so will have some “proper” photos up here again before the end of the month !!
Been a long time. Haven’t I used the nifty fifty since the Tamron 17-50 f2.8 arrived in the kit bag, so now making a conscious effort to use it more.
Didn’t really get out much further than the back garden so ended up taking another one of the dog. Pensive look from Daisy in this one which was hand held at f1.8 with a shutter speed of 1/30 at iso 1600
