I love taking macro pictures, but have not had the right lenses on my camera to do so. I was searching for good macro lenses and still they seemed really pricey. But then I ran into someone taking amazing macro pictures just using an extension tube! I had had a set of extension tubes for my previous Canon, but the 5 euro eBay find I was using left me unimpressed. I found a 17 euro one this time, which even had the ability to use auto focus on my camera! I ordered it and it came in the promised time! Happines ensued.
All these pictures are taken using my Canon 5D Mark II with the 50mm/f1.8 lense and 31mm extension tube. Different exposures etc in almost every picture. The day was very windy, which made me almost lose my mind while trying to take macro pictures of flowers! Well, maybe next time the weather is still.
