On black or pretty close to it
and on white
A little cheating lesson (and please don't judge my dust)
Do you have an SLR, digital or film it really doesn't matter? Did you ever lust over a really expensive macro lens? I have but there is no way I can justify it. I mean really, to do detail shots of scrapbook pages? That sounds lame. Then one day I confessed my desire to my husband who started asking me a whole lot of questions.
What do you want it for? How often do you expect to use it . . . Pretty practical stuff really. And when he was done he said, "well I think I know what would solve your problem." The he went on the internet and showed me a screw on macro lens. Not a full lens like the pros use but a $20 device.
OK, for $20 I'll trust him. Well maybe I trust him anyways. lol So I ordered it and this little bag has become my friend.
|It has a lens cap too.|
|I know hard to see but just to the left of the 52 mm they are visible|
Now before you run off excited there is a price to pay for the price. First off, you need to be able to manually focus your camera. Second, you will need a lot of light to get good results. (That's what is wrong with my first two pictures - not enough light) Thirdly, and most importantly, you need to be able to live with a lot of distortion around the edges.
This is a marginally cropped picture of the same pen on white.
Have a great weekend
