Closing In

OK so I finally got the el cheapo extension tubes from ebay. It was quite a suspense wait as the seller actually got kicked out from ebay a few days after I ordered them. In the end the seller honored the order and I received the tubes last week.

I've been playing with them for a while now and the conclusion is: macro photography is DAMN HARD! Coupled with the Canon EF 50mm lens, the tubes create an extremely shallow of depth of field that can be very hard to control. Just moving a few millimeter can and will ensure an out of focus frenzy. So in desperation I got hold of a Manfrotto tripod courtesy of the library and managed to get some half decent shots of the family.
