Day 138

And finally we arrive at the day where I make up all the sessions that I have missed over the last two weeks. As I explained a few weeks ago, I bought a new toy recently - a set of extension tubes that I have been practicing with. One of the problem with the tubes, however, is that they require you get very close to your subject and hold very very still, something that I am not too good at doing. But I thought that for today's post, I would show you exactly what it is that they do.

So this is a photo that was taken with my Canon EF 50mm 1.8 II lens.

Shutter speed: 1/50
Aperture: f/3.2
ISO: 1600

This photo was taken with the same lens, but with one ring from the extension tube attached.

Shutter speed: 1/50
ISO: 640

This photo was taken with two rings.

Shutter speed: 1/50
ISO: 1250

This photo was taken with three rings.

Shutter speed: 1/50
ISO: 3200

The last photo is not one that I am particularly fond of, however it does go to show what the extension tube can do given the right circumstances. I hope this project makes up for the missed days.
