Macro setup 1
Mouseover for notes!
I was asked about my setup so here are some :words: I think this is a decent supercheap setup for someone who wants to try taking macro shots without blowing ?800 on a proper macro lens and another few hundred on a flash.
This is the rig that I'm currently using, all the macro shots in my photostream were taken with this (or very similar) setup.
The only hardware you need to buy to convert the camera for macro use are the extension tube set, I use a 65mm set which I picked up on Ebay for about ?5 (€753495, $9489573). There are extension tubes that have electrical connections so you retain autofocus/aperture but these are more expensive.
To make the flash extender I cut some clear plastic bottles into shape, wrapped them in tin foil with the shiny side facing inwards, and put a diffuser on the end made from a white polyethylene shopping bag. Finally it was wrapped in black electrical tape to help eliminate unwanted reflections, I also taped two neodymium magnets into the extender so I could easily attach and remove it from the lens.
The mounting for the flash extender is made from a piece of cork with two neodymium magnets embedded, it's secured to the lens with a cable tie and coloured black.
Settings I most often use:
Flash Comp +2
Because the EF-S 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 lens doesn't have a control for manually adjusting aperture you need to mount it on the camera, set the desired aperture then press and hold the DOF preview button whilst you remove the lens. The aperture will stay set when you break the connection to the camera, you'll need to repeat this whenever you want to change aperture.
Random: What's in my bag?
I came home from a meeting and I was bored. This could have also occurred because I just took Nyquil from having a sore throat throughout the whole day.
