Macro Experiment - Unexpected result.
4 months ago

Hi all,

I've been setting myself little tasks with the aim of getting to know my camera (Nikon D7000) a little better.

I thought that macro photography might be fun so I splashed out on some extension rings for use with my kit lens.

This is one of the results:

as you can see there is a lot of contamination on the right of the photo, all a bit alarming. Is this a case of a dirty sensor? Looking inside the body it looks spotlessly clean. Or is this normal but noticeable because of the very short focal length?

It's a 3 part tube set and I was trying different combinations and I'm not entirely sure what I had fitted when I took the photo.

Can anyone explain what's going on and maybe suggest a solution?

Thanks and regards.

Nikon D7000
