Traces of Love by KittiesGoShoot Traces of Love by KittiesGoShoot
I wanted to go for a much softer result with a pretty shallow depth of field, so I decided to shoot at f/8 with the extension tubes. I can say it was a lot more trickier to get a shot I felt happy with. Surprisingly so, when taking the shots I was sure of one of the images being the one I'd choose after reviewing on the PC, however, one of the images I overlooked turned out to be the best of them all. I love when that happens. *giggles*

The gorgeously pink petals the droplets of water are resting/hanging on are from a beautiful bunch of roses the sweet nyssi bought me for my birthday <3 x50.

Best of the lot, Zeta! My favorite snap..

BTW, how would you compare extension tubes to a macro lens? I do have a good normal lens (Canon 24-105 L) (and a macro lens), but the quality of the normal lens is way better than the macro.. So wondering if it will be a better option to use tubes with the normal lens..

I'd say you don't have much to lose if you pick up some cheap extension tubes and use them on your L series lens. Obviously, loss of light can be an issue with extension tubes when you have quite a few stacked. I noticed you're in the UK, so you could always try these (I use these personally) [link] and at that price, you can't really go wrong.

I hope that was a bit helpful!

Hi Zeta! Sorry, havent tried them out yet - the tubes are still sitting on the shelf awaiting lazy me.. :(

Was roaming around Oxford last weekend, have also been reading up a little about photography.. As of now I'm still letting the camera take all the decisions, I want to change this, so hopefully this weekend will be interesting...

Yea, I've got my 12mm extension tube now and I love it. Maybe I'll buy one more extension tube later on, but for now I'm very satisfied with 12mm. :)
