The thing is… Hey, thing, it is good to have you back… I am still playing around with macro super-close-up photography.
As per the suggestion of my son-in-law, who loaned me the three macro lens spacer thingies that I have been playing with, I tried using them with my big zoom lens attachment.
He said this meant I could move a little further back, and eliminate the problem of the shadow of my own lens getting in the photo.
It did solve that problem, but created another one: now, I am having trouble getting those really close up images I am looking for.
Don’t get me wrong, these are still nice photos.
It also does nothing to address another issue with macro photography. The field of focus is small. Only a tiny portion of any picture is in focus. I can get around this by cropping the image to just the in focus sections, but as an example, is any part of the above photo in focus???
That is a good shot of a tiny star jasmine flower.
I guess the point is that I am having fun learning.
