Macro Photography

  1. 1. Macro Photography
  2. 2. First attempts at Macro Photography. Trial One: 17-40mm Lens with 36mm Extension Tube
  3. 3. 2 mm Wide Individual False Mallow Seeds
  4. 4. 1 cm Diameter False Mallow Seed Head
  5. 5. 8 mm Wide Nerite Shell
  6. 6. Trial Two: 70-200mm Lens with Stacked 36+20+12mm Extension Tubes
  7. 7. Lens is Parallel to Surface
  8. 8. Bermuda Sand Sample
  9. 9. 2 mm Wide Individual False Mallow Seeds
  10. 10. 1 cm Wide False Mallow Seed Head
  11. 11. 1 mm Wide x 1.5 mm Long Shells from Fiji Sand Sample
  12. 12. 8 mm Wide Nerite Shell
  13. 13. Preliminary Conclusions: It appears that in order to do good macro photography, I am going to need better lighting. With better light, I can get better depth of field which means sharper images. As far as the lens setups are concerned, the 17-40mm lens with the 36mm extension tube gives me large magnification at a short working distance. The 70-200mm with 68mm of stacked extension tubes provides increased working distance at the loss of magnification. Advice would be appreciated...
