My first attempt at 1:1 Macro
Posted By: fletcherkane, 05-08-2007, 01:46 PM

Hey all,
Totally new to me is a Vivtar 2x macro teleconverter that gives true 1:1 macro with a 50 mm lens. (So it claims...) I attached my Pentax-M 50mm 1.4 and this was the first shot out of the bag...
Shot this blooming hosta with the lens wide open at 1/2500th of a second in pretty bright sunlight. What ya think? Photo is uncropped and unretouched.

Very interesting photo fletcherkane, I like it.
Although it looks like an abstract more than a macro to me. It looks like there was a little movement there somewhere to give it that appearance.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of them
