P52: Week 10/52- Macro, General
This week's theme focused on shooting macro, or close-up. I was without a macro lens and at my husband's suggestion, tried using a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens with an extension tube. It was difficult to say the least, the weight of the camera with the enormous lens made it impossible to hold it steady for a good shot! So I went back to my tried and true 50mm f/1.4. A friend of mine sent along some suggestions and helpful article about shooting macro. As this is the theme for the month, I thank you for joining me as I learn more about shooting up close :).
