The light in this church was really nice.
I think I am hooked :) , here’s a couple from yesterday.
Inspired by the productive Terra Rathai of the blog “Avant Garden 365″ http://avantgarden365.wordpress.com/
My niece Ella, 2 years old.
Yet another photo shot with the Canon 500D close up lens on a Nikkor 70-200 2.8
Photoshot using a Nikon D800 camera body and Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VRII lens.
As promised I have done a comparision of the Canon 500D +2 close up lens and a set of really cheap generic close up filters (got 4 of them at a 1/10th the price of the Canon lens)..
The superior sharpness of the more expensive lens is apparent in all situations. Also notice the fringes. Click for larger images. If requested I will put up raw versions.
Also for reference I include shots taken with the generic +4 and +10 filters (the latter being unusable IMO)
This is 1337 post on my blog :)
Today I got hold of the elusive Canon 500D Close up filter – and may I say it was a bitch to find; I love the Nikkor 70-200 2.8 but sometimes I wish I could get closer to the subject – I do have other lenses but as for now the excellent tele zoom is my glass of choice. Besides the Canon I also bought a set of really cheap close up filters (the canon was 10x more expensive), this was because I wanted to see the difference. I will try to do a comparision tomorrow but as for now I can say that the 500D seems very promising.
It’s a quite a big leap going from a closest focal distance of nearly 1,5 meters to 0,5 meter.
Here are two test shots;
I don’t often use the Tamron 90mm in macro mode, but yesterday was an exception. Spring is here.
