Photo-A-Day #2167

Not satisfied with just getting close to a subject I’m trying to get extremely close to one. So I took my Sigma 28-70mm lens and added to it all four of the Zeikos Close Up filters and then the Bowler adapter ring and the Opteka macro lens. I took that and I shot a bunch of things on my desk at work. Today’s photo is of a very common item. It is a soda can tab.

My month of shooting digitally is going strong and there are some great fun products for me to use. I emptied out my camera bag to make sure that I got all of them out to use. I still have a bunch more to play with and I have one more gadget coming to me in the mail that will take my macro photos even closer.

Here are a few more photos that I took with that configuration.

This is my own personal DSLR camera that I bought half of. My mother-In-Law bought the other half as an investment of great photos of her grandchildren. With over 26,000 photos of Eva and counting, I’d say she got great ROI on the investment. The opinions about them are 100% mine.

Disclosure: I received a number of Seagate devices including the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1 TB USB 2.0 Ultra-Portable External Hard Drive, GoFlex Home, GoFlex TV and GoFlex Net. I’ll be talking about these devices in the coming months. The opinions about the devices are 100% mine.

    Drew, I am liking this series, I especially like when you take additional photos of the set up and how you accomplish the shots
