Fooling around with my Macro-Tak 50/4
Posted By: Rense, 02-26-2009, 05:13 AM

Found some time to play with my Macro-Tak 50mm f/4.0. It's my first "around macro" lens and I have no experience with this kind of photography whatsoever. But...one of my more serious hobbies is the study of mosses and lichens, and that is an exellent subject for macro photography IMO. So, I have to practice, and you will know that!

The first and the second ones are made without , the third with extension tubes. Oh, and in the case it is unrecognisable: the blue ones are neither a moss, nor a lichen... Oh2...I know I made a mess of my lens in the third one, I'll have to pay attention the next time I am so intimate with a moss....

I like the dew on the hyacinths, particularly the first shot.

PS: the mess on the third one was dirt on the sensor, as pointed out by Asahiflex. I cleaned it a little....
