A77M2 - Tamron 70-200 + Canon 500D close-up lens
Jul 5, 2014

I decided to see if I could create a closeup (not macro) setup using the Tamron 70-200 lens with the Canon 500D close-up lens and my macro flash setup.

To my big surprise this works great, much better than I would have ever hoped for.

When doing macro I normally use manual focus but with this setup I can use auto focus and that makes it super easy to follow the bee (in this case) around from flower to flower.

Bee being hard at work

Busy bee

The versatility of the Tamron 70-200 keeps amazing me.

One image at a time I hope to one day master the art of imagery
