My poor attempt at macro
Lens: Sigma 70-200 w/canon 500d Camera: K7 
Posted By: thechucked, 05-28-2010, 02:48 PM

First few shots with my canon 500d close up filter. Saving up for a new infiniti FX35 so instead of getting the Pentax 100mm, I went with a cheaper route - the canon 500d.

Not that sharp, DOF is very, very narrow. Min focusing distance is a litte over a foot, and max distance is probably only 2-3 feet away. Overall, Im still pretty happy with it.

Not a bad start! The first shot wasn't bad at all- I liked it!

I agree with Adam on the first shot. With practice you'll improve the technique but one thing in your favour is that you are actually seeing the shot before you take it and that's why your composition of subjects is good.
