Showing you the world from a different perspective

Up close and personal

up close and personalWhile on holiday at devon I was given some old photography gear by a great man called Alan so thanks a lot for that Alan, I really appreciate it. Although the lens’s were for a Contax SLR, I purchased a Contax to Nikon mount off eBay. These lenses work great for macro work with extension tubes like the shot above. I had to use a rolled a piece of paper attached to the top of the lens to bounce the flash light onto the tiny fly. I don’t actually own a flashgun yet but plan to buy one soon. I just use my popup flash which I have learned, has it’s limits. If anyone else  has any other methods on how they light their subjects in macro work, please comment as I love learning new tips and tricks that will help me progress my knowledge of photography. Thanks
