Today's Macro Shoot
Lens: Sigma 100-300 4.5-6.7 Camera: K20D Photo Location: Sydney ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/350s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: MSD, 05-18-2011, 12:14 AM

Well now my exams are finally over I can get round to posting some photos. I was eager to get back together with my K20D and I did this today very quickly.

Walked a short distance around the suburb with my 100-300/4.5-6.7 on a full set of extension rings. The lens otherwise has a 200cm MFD. I hope to improve this setup with primes and reversing but for the time being this is what I have.

Here's the first set.

Oh, I didn't label them.
1- In the thick of moss a seedling grows
2-Droplets of a smaller scale
4-Purple! in a sea of green

I like shooting in other people's gardens on a Wednesday afternoon the day after exams.

Not bad results for a consumer telezoom on extension tubes. #1 is particularly pleasing, though they could all be sharper (probably a lens limitation).

More from Wednesday

Here are some others: the 2nd/3rd are what I see as my self-portraits in a group of friends...
The last couple are off the extension rings and using the 100-300 as a 100mm prime (all I dare use it for due to the restrictive IQ).
