Tulip Macros

The mechanical system in the building received some major updates this week, so there was no electricity here for a good part of the day. Consequently, today’s post is somewhat late and will be an easy one. I spent a good part of the day outside today taking photographs. The weather was beautiful in the afternoon and within the past couple of days the tulips have opened up. I’ve always found that tulips were wonderful candidates for macro shots. I’ve always been fascinated by macro photography and always wanted to try it but was prevented by the cost of the lenses. Then, one day, I read a reference to “extension tubes.” I looked it up and for a pretty reasonable amount of money you can do macro photography. So I bought a set of inexpensive ones and I think they work pretty well. You have to focus manually, but that’s not too hard.
