123 (2 May 2012) More Macro

I just decided to play w/ my macro lens some this afternoon.  Nothing fancy, just some shots of my watch and my work boots.

    • Thanks Inga! I use a Canon EF-S 60mm Macro f/2.8 USM. It’s small and light, and the ‘shorter’ focal length allows more hand-held shots than the longer lenses (or so I’m told). I love it! If you are a canon shooter, I recommend it! Unlike some of the 3rd party lenses, the front element does not extend.

      • Thanks for the tip. 🙂 I am a Canon user and are considering buying a more dedicated macro lens than my Sigma 17-70mm with macro.

  1. Great photos. I’m always a fan of watch photography. Not sure if you saw the shot I did of my watch a month or so back. I really like the boot shot too. I would have never thought to use that as a subject, but it works great. I love the muted tones.

    • Thanks Denzil! I just found your post, I like it! With the boots I was trying to bring out the texture of the worn leather. I’m not entirely happy w/ the DoF on it, but I can always shoot them again! 🙂

  2. Firstly would never have thought to use either a watch or a boot for such a shot, brilliant idea.
    Secondly they have come out so perfectly that they are an inspiration, my wife will probably wonder why I’m lining all my old boots up today.
