I was reading about a new Kickstarter lens today and remembered that I had a set of lenses that I’ve never actually used from K&F Concept.
They’re magnification addons these ones are 52mm so they screw into your kit lens with no problems. I just rammed all four together to give it X17 magnification and they worked pretty well on some slowly dying flowers.
I’ve tried reverse rings and extension tubes for macro stuff but these do just as good a job so I’ll keep them in the bag for when I’m out and about.
Having managed/braved about half an hour of Christmas shopping I gave up and headed home. Ended up firing a couple of shots at sunset and then these extension tube attempts on some slowly dying flowers.
Not the greatest or sharpest shots ever taken but I like them. Some attempts from the weekend shooting frozen webs, these are shots of the frost covered ground. Close up and baltic!
Might make a better effort in the future, plenty more winter to come.
All shot with an extension tube on a D3100 with 28mm lens.
Had the extension tubes in the bag when I was out briefly shooting at the weekend. If I don’t see anything big to shoot then I can maybe get something small.
Trying to catch this bug with the extension tubes.
