I just got my Raynox DCR-250 Super Macro Snap-On lens in the mail and the learning curve has been steep. The lighting was already not that great in the evening so I had to brighten up a lot of these shots. I’m looking forward to finding new critters in better lighting to practice on because even the okay shots I got today are pretty exciting!
I spent a long time with this guy and with only my small octopus tripod I couldn’t get really close without worrying about slipping and squishing him. Beautiful colours though!
Same goes for this buddy. You can also see the edges of the clip on doobery which isn’t great. Finally I took some video and the lighting seemed to be a lot better!
Then – not using the macro lens – I got this short clip of a woodpecker hopping up a tree.
So yeah, just some practice shots – nothing too sciencey here! (note the usage of the terms buddy, little guy and doobery)
