Night of the Zombies
Lens: Sigma 70-300 APO DG Camera: K-x Photo Location: My Backyard ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/90s Aperture: F22

Just finished shooting in my backyard with a new setup. This time I used my Sigma 70-300 DG APO with a Raynox 150 macro lens attached. I've only shot a few pictures with this combo, but so far I like this setup the best. You don't have to get too close to the subject, maybe 30" instead of 3", so it is much easier to use.

Also, I really don't have to use any other flash but the onboard flash, no diffuser or anything.

Well, here are a few of the "Zombie Bug" I took just after sunset. I'm not sure what kind of bug it is, but it was extremely small about 1/4 the size of a regular small fly.

Did I mention I LIKE THIS SETUP!

CJ, you have really progressed the last couple of weeks, great job and taking macro shots from that distance isn't something I have heard about. Bob

Wow! He is a a strange one! Neat shots, I need to get out my Raynox 250...but it requires very close shooting. Have you used the 259 before?

Thanks guys! Rupert, I haven't used the 250 only the 150, so I'm not sure how well it works. This is really my first time using the 150 since I bought it 6 months ago.

Yeah Bob, the macro bug as bit me hard (no pun intended ). I'm tinkering after work building diffusers and finding out different ways to use the lenses I have on hand for macro work. I don't have any TRUE macro lenses, so I'm doing the best I can

I'm neglecting my usual landscapes and wildlife photography right now, but who says you have to stick to one thing anyway!
