‘Cos I’d been needlessly driving myself nuts, on and off, for the past 2 weeks…and the torment ended today.
Well, I’d never bought anything online before and took the plunge. And I’d heard horror stories regarding eBay purchases…so I’ve been like, “Will I get the wrong item? What if it’s damaged or in lousy condition? Will it work properly?”…blah blah blah, my neurotic neurons throbbed.
ANYWHO…my two extension tubes arrived today…and they are GORGEOUS.
Pics 1 and 2 aren’t stellar close-ups…they’re just test shots to make sure the tubes worked fine. The light wasn’t that great either. But I just had to share the test shots (and my wonderful day) with you all
Pics 3, 4 and 5 are just informative shots for those interested in what extension tubes look like and where they fit in relation to the cam, i.e., between cam and lens. The duo cost me about 33 pounds including postage so they’re an affordable way to get up-close.
I’ve known about extension tubes ever since I fell in love with close-up photography when I was 15…but this is the first time I’ve actually had or used them. Well…I once used a toilet roll cardboard centre as an extension tube (the principle holds) and photographed the majorly magnified fibres on some fabric…but that doesn’t count
