Grasshopper – experimenting with Extension Tubes for Macro Photography

I have had a set of Kenko Extension Tubes for a long time, but have never really used them, but was filling in some time, and thought it would be a good time to test them out.

This photo was taken with 70-200mm and 20mm extension tube on a 7D ( this is a very heavy set up for macro)

This one was taken with 24-105mm again with 20mm Extension Tube on 7D ( both with external flash )

I was then going to take some photos with a proper Macro lens for comparison, but for some reason Mr Grasshoppper took offence at the flash going off in his face and flew away.

Cheers Dave

I have discovered I have a love for life and doing anything creative, and I am constantly striving to build, make, create and photograph things , I live my you can learn to do anything, but the hardest part is you d o not have time to do everything - follow my journey as I try and do as much as I can with the time I have. I live in the Gold Coast Hinterland, Queensland Australia, on top of a mall mountains, surrounded by thousands of acres of bush land. This is sight is a basically a diary of my day to day adventures, it will have everything from Portrait photo sessions, craft projects, yard word, Trail Cam footage.
