Of Closeups and Macros…

First of all, let’s put everything to what our normal eyes can see. I’ve used a miniature Bahay Kubo with my watch beside it for you to see the actual size of the miniature bahay kubo.

For those who have visited my page, My Gear, I have in my bag a 60mm f/2.8 Macro lens which I use to take life-size closeups or macro shots since this lens has a 1:1 magnification.


For really extreme closeups, I use my Commlite Extension Tubes with AF (auto focus) which allow me to further lengthen the magnification capability of my 60mm macro lens.



The image below is a comparison of the images taken with my 60mm macro lens alone and with my 60mm macro lens with a 34mm extension tube (13mm + 21mm).


Just the 60mm Macro Lens

The images below were all taken with just my 60mm Macro Lens.
