Recently I visited the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory to test out some Kenko DG Extension Tubes. I mounted the extension tubes and a M.Zuiko 60 mm f/2.8 macro lens on my Olympus OM-D E-M1X. At times, this high magnification gear combination required some additional hand-holding support. I had the opportunity to use my forearm camera support technique during this photo session. One of our readers, Ray Miller, joined me at the facility and took a photo to help document this camera technique.
Most of us use extension tubes and macro lenses separately for our close-up photography needs. As regular readers will know, I like to push my camera gear to see what will happen. This article features a selection of hand-held images captured by combining an M.Zuiko 60 mm f/2.8 macro lens with extension tubes. All of the photographs in this article were created at the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory.
My Olympus camera equipment arrived a couple of days ago. One of the things that I was really looking forward to trying out was the M.Zuiko 60 mm f/2.8 macro lens. I had been wondering for a while whether it would be possible to create some Hand-held Hi Res macro flower images. This article shares a selection of photographs which illustrate my initial attempts.
