Okay, this macro photography thing is really confusing me. Like many kinds of art, there are multiple ways to achiever roughly the same effect. All this time playing with the three macro zoom lens my son-in-law loaned me, and he just got around to suggesting that I try using them with my big zoom lens.
I took these photos with the regular lens with the macro lens spacers. I was playing around trying to figure out which size was best. I called him to ask how to keep the shadow of the lens off the object I was photographing. He said the big zoom would let me move further back.
So now I guess I have to start the playing around all over again.
And I started doing that… but I have a few other posts to do first.
But I do love the super close up macro photography. How else would I have known that this small rock, from the collection of small rocks I have picked up in my world travels, had a small mouth on it? It looks a little like a mummified alien head.
