i love the first shot a lot because the foreground colour is vibrant but the background gets darker and fade into black.

Once again mate...... fecking superb shots..... are they with your 50mm EF 1.8???

I'm looking at getting one.

I've also just purchased one of these Canon 55-250mm EF-S f4-5.6 IS from camerabox. My old 70-300mm Sigma has given up and no longer wants to focus.

Fingers x'd it will arrive tomorrow so will add a few more pics.

Cheers

Many thanks for the comment mate <3
Nice ! How much did that cost you? I'm saving for a whole new kit now, new camera body, and two lenses plus another flash, and a new laptop lol, not cheap at all ! I love my 50mm, its my main lens at the moment. Its not what I used for my macro stuff, keep reading, and all will be explained. I'm glad you like the shots mate Very Happy

Bujj, I miss you, many thanks for the comment Very Happy I'm glad you like them !

----- My Macro stuff explained. -----

Right, well to achieve these macro/close up shots of the moth and flowers, most people would look to spend a few hundred pounds on a dedicated macro lens, for those that dont know what it does, it basically zooms into the subject to give a 1:1 ratio, so its as life size as you'll ever get, the detail captured is beyond what the human eye can see. I if you have the money I suggest you invest in a macro lens if close up photography is something your interested in, if your like me and dont have the cash to be spending on lenses, buy what is called a Reversing Ring. These are cheap and cheerful, I bought mine for £15 delivered.

What does it do?
What a reversing ring does, is enable you to attach the lens backwards onto the camera.

Great, Now What?
Because of the way the lens works with the camera's sensor, everything is backwards, so if your using an 18-55mm Lens, 55mm is now the widest and 18mm is the most zoom. Because the lens is backwards when the you look through the view finder, everything is enlarged and very blurry, this is because all the auto focusing is disabled.

How Do I Focus?
To focus on a subject, you use what is called the rocking technique, and all you is rock back and forth in front of the subject until its in focus, and there we have it, a cheap and cheerful way to get up close and personal.


I've pasted the link to the EXACT reversing ring that I use, its to be used with a CANON LENSES with a DIAMETER of 58mm ONLY ! This can be found on the lens itself, I use this with my Canon 18-55mm Lens and it works fine.

Thanks for reading, I hope it helped, if you have any questions, please ask Very Happy

Sam I've seen this tamron lense for £130. 70mm-300mm telephoto but has a macro setting. Only 1:2 though. What do you think?

I've got a Sigma 70-300mm and its pretty awesome, but in my opinion its not the most practical lens if your not shooting long distance. So stuff like the food stuff you've shot, you wont be able to get close to it, you'd have to shoot from pretty far back.

If you've got the money get the Canon 50mm f1.8 - You wont regret it.

Thats a really fast aperture. Reading it says it takes photos as close to what the human eye would see.

This is about a sigma 70-300mm lens with 1:2 macro


Telephoto zoom lens with excellent cost performance and optimised for use with digital SLR cameras.
Capable of macro photography, this lens has a 1:2 maximum close-up magnification at the 300 mm focal length. It’s the ideal high performance lens for portraits, sports photography, nature photography, and other types of photography that frequently use the telephoto range.
SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass We used SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass in this lens for excellent correction of chromatic aberration. This also corrects for fluctuation of aberration due to focusing. The new multi layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting, a common problem with digital cameras and also creates an optimum colour balance.
Macro shooting with maximum magnification 1:2
The minimum focusing distance is 1.5 m/59 inches at all zoom settings. It also has a switch for changeover to macro photography at focal lengths between 200mm and 300mm with a maximum close-up magnification from 1:2.9 to 1:2.

I've not been able to take photos that close with my 70-300mm but its still a good buy, whats the aperture on the lens your looking at? Probably about 4/5 right? What you looking to photograph with it?
