After holding my breath last week, I decided it was time for more. More holding my breath, more macro till I'm cross eyed. And this is a pretty good cross section of the methods available to me. The first one I took with the reverse lens macro technique, using my slightly broken 50mm and my 55-250 on the camera. This method is hard! And it makes me strain my eyes trying to figure out what's in focus. But there is something I do really like about the shot below, so maybe it's worth it.
This one I took using the Lensbaby Composer and the +4 macro lens.
The last two are the Composer and the +10 macro. Turns out that the +10 is a lot easier to use if there's enough available light. I took these mid-afternoon in open shade - some of my favorite light.
But it's weird, even looking at them makes me feel a little out of breath! Maybe I should really start using my tripod.
Anyway, you might see a few more macro shots from me in the future, so be prepared!
