Why not put on the extension tubes and take advantage of the still beautiful bouquet of yellow roses I gave myself (with photography in mind) for Valentines Day. I also wanted to try out my new Shutter Release Cable, something I have needed ever since getting the camera several years ago. It is a Vello brand from B&H Photography, and it is very nice and works just fine! No more worries over camera shake trying to press the button, especially while using the extension tubes.
For the roses I did set the camera to Close Up, there was a white foam core tri-fold presentation board behind the mason jar of roses, that the flash bounced off of. I did have all 3 extension tubes on the camera.
Next looking around the art room, what in the world could I spot that would catch my eye? There in the box of miscellaneous items that I collect, thinking that they may come in handy for photography props at some point was the box of green mosses. Lets try those.
I wonder what close ups of watercolor painting may reveal, often you see more through the view finder or screen (live view) than when you look at the entire painting as a whole. Here is some of what I found today.
There were many more close ups, to many to include in one post, so I will be doing another post soon.
