Extreme Macro for Under $40

Photo-A-Day #2166

I continue to have fun with my gadgets. I connected my new 10+ close up filter to my Sigma 28-70mm lens and then the 52mm adapter so I could also attach my Opteka macro lens to that. I got incredibly close up with my shot. Want to see what I got using the Sigma 28-70mm lens alone at 70mm from the same exact spot.

Yes, the Photo-A-Day photo today is of that red square. I was less than an inch away from that little bit of Lichen. I was out shooting with Eva. She was shooting photos of me while I took this photo. I would probably have gotten some much clearer photos of the lichen if I was using a tripod or something like that. The lens was so close that I had to go manual focus.

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.
