Title: MACRO/CLOSE UP CHAT - for weekly comp 17-24/05/2020
Post by: jinky on May 17, 2020, 09:31:55 AM
Macro / Close Up

This is the CHAT THREAD

I want to experiment with my Fuji and an unused Nikon mount to use my old Sigma macro lens on it- so I thought  why not make this weeks challenge related to make me do it? Doesn`t have to be a macro - anything as close up as you can get using whatever you have.

Interpret and edit how you wish, no holds barred on the PP.

Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23:59 Monday 25th May 2020.

I have had a bit of a mare. I thought today was Sunday, it felt like a Sunday but its actually a bank holiday Monday.  :uglystupid2: :doh: :uglystupid2: :doh:

So I have run out of time to get my photo. Will see if I have something in my archives.

I did my shot with my Fuji xf 90 lens with a close up attachment on it that made it a struggle to get what I really wanted. Only yesterday did I get a chance to do my original plan and use a cheap ebay Nikon adaptor to fit my Sigma 105mm Nikon fit lens onto my Fuji xt30. Very difficult to use with fast moving bees as I was on manual focus with a hit and miss experience re: exposure too. Fuji "by wire" focusing leaves a bit to be desired when in manual. Makes me want to dusto off my trusty Nkon d700 with the macro lens on it. These two were  Ok though.
