Dont you just love it when your walking along (admittedly in a cemetery) and you go “Hey, that dead looking flower is pretty cool, I just happen to have an extension tube and a 50mm on my F5, This could be a cool image”
And it was True Story
Out hunting for mushrooms again…
Flower Macro using extension tube.
Straight off the camera with no processing.
Underside of a dead rose
I have always enjoyed playing round with macro lenses (in this case extension tubes) and find that you usually dont get interesting images unless you spend a bit of time looking for different angles. Both these images were shot underneath so you dont get the cliche’d looking straight down on the rose (yawn) shot.
