Look at the color in this image! I love the gathering of mint leaves, the sliver in the pepper, and the sprinkling of sugar with the solo mint leaf. The side lighting, the variety of produce and spices as well as the random scatter of the spices and cloves make for a fascinating composite of mystery. What will these ingredients come together to produce? http://www.pennydelossantos.com/#a=0&at=0&mi=2&pt=1&pi=10000&s=0&p=0
Today I went to the greenhouse to get some tomatoes for my shoot. I started out with two tomatoes that draw my attention due to some gigantic leaves, so they became my first frame. I figured out that my camera was mounted with my 100mm macro lens so I decided to continue the macro path and got more and more exited the more details I found in the tomatoes. I did more than 40 different frame settings all getting closer. For my second picture I picked the last one where my macro lens was mounted on three extension tubes (total 68mm) and I really enjoy the many details you can find in such a small cherry tomato. What do you think? ?
Jens- I took a look at your website, and I love your work. I also have an 100mm macro lens, but I have never heard of an extension tube. I just looked them up on Amazon and found some different brands like Neewer and Vivitar. Do you have any suggestions on what to look for in an extension tube? I see that you purchase one that is specific for your camera. Any brand preferences? What do I look for in terms of magnifcation?
Hi Susan! I use Canon gear and it was my intention to by a canon extension tube. However I was recommended a brand called Kenko, where you for app. for the same price as the canon 26mm get a set of rings 12mm, 20mm, 36mm which can be used individually, in combination or all together. You are not only limited to use them on your macro lens, but on any lens you choose. They are available for Canon, Nikon Pentax ect. Here is the link for the Canon ones: http://www.amazon.com/Kenko-Macro-Automatic-Extension-Canon/dp/B000U8Y88M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1407662288&sr=8-1&keywords=kenko+extension+tubes+canon
