Sorry I’ve been away from the blog for a few days, I’ve just had a lot going on, but I’m back! :0)
As you know, I just got a big girl camera a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been trying desperately to learn how to use this thing!
I am getting the hang of some of it, but I wanted to take some really close up pics and you just can’t do that very well on the regular modes of the camera. I decided to get a macro lens…well sort of. Macro lenses cost a small fortune, so I found a cool little gadget that works beautifully and only cost a FRACTION of what a macro lens cost.
Let me introduce you to the Raynox DCR-250. It just clips to the front of your regular lens and takes great pics! ($75.00 on amazon)
I took all the photos on this page with the Raynox, and I’m just learning how to use it, so if you REALLY know what you’re doing, your pics would be fabulous! (some day I’ll learn more!) I did buy the Canon EOS for DUMMIES book, so I’m trying! lol
Anyway, here a few shots I took using the Raynox. Keep in mind, these flowers are teeny tiny, but look like normal size flowers because of the lens. :0)
Our birch tree bark…. (I think it kinda looks like shaved white chocolate!)
Spider web with dew…..
Butterfly on flower…..
Miniature rose bud…
Sneak peek of an upcoming project….
I’m just in love with this little lens! The Raynox is a super macro conversion lens that works with SLR/Video cameras. You’ll have to check to make sure it’ll work with yours, but it sure has made me a happy gal!
I have one of my projects that I was telling you about totally finished, so it’ll be coming up this week, so keep an eye out!
Have a great week!
PS..I didn’t get any compensation for telling you about this lens, I just think it’s a great product for the price. :0)
