Here on my blog I’ve already shown some photos I shot with my Sigma DP3M and the achromatic lenses Marumi DHG200 and Raynox DCR-250. However, those were only test images of a tape measure in order to find out what magnification factor the combination achieves. Besides that, I’ve documented the fan replacement on my neighbor’s laptop with the above-mentioned equipment. But even those pictures aren’t exactly what I consider to be real macro. So far I haven’t undertaken any photo walk, with real macro subjects. Either I didn’t have time or the weather was bad when I had a day off.
That’s why my joy was even bigger when I left the office sooner today and the sun was still shining. I rushed back home, grabbed my equipment and went on a photo walk. I didn’t succeed in getting many insects in front of the lens, but still one particular fly turned out to be especially cooperative. For several minutes it kept posing so I had time to try different settings and perspectives.
