Show us your Macros!
Aug 14, 2012

Some presents arrived in the post today:

1x set of extension tubes
1x JJC MSA-10 hotshoe flash adapter.

So naturally I decided to head to the garden and have some off-camera flash + macro fun.

This is my first try at macros and it's quite addictive.

NEX5 + MSA10 + Elinchrom Skyport in one hand, to trigger an old Nikon SB-26 held in the other hand. The lens is a Canon FD 50mm f1.4 via cheap eBay adapter.

One question: I found I had to stop down to f11 or f16 to get enough depth of field which then of course caused the LCD image to be almost black that I could hardly see what I was taking a shot of - does anyone know of a way around that?

Sony Alpha NEX-5
