Ok I tried out my close up filters today on my Panasonic 45-175mm f4-5.6. I've always fancied a go at macro and following advice from @GardenersHelper and encouragement from @Graham I bought a cheap set of close up filters to try macro and see if I was suited to it. Here are two images I tried today, please excuse the rubbish subject, I just wanted to see what they could produce and I needed a static subject P9160001-Edit-2.jpg by Steve Vickers, on Flickr P9160017-Edit.jpg by Steve Vickers, on Flickr Basically I had a +4 and a +2 filter on the lens and the camera on my mini tripod. I used the Olympus focus bracketing, set at 15 shots at +4 differential. They were stacked together in PS. One thing I noticed about the close up filters, they have a very limited focal range and will not focus on any thing outside of it, so much so that on my first attempts the camera wouldn't take 15 shots, I'm assuming thats due to its inability to focus at all the stages. One thing that I did notice was this P9160001-Edit-2.jpg by Steve Vickers, on Flickr It's on both images, full sizes on Flickr for those interested. I'm assuming its my technique, if so does anyone know what I did wrong? I would like to continue this adventure a little further, so any advice on how I can improve would be greatly appreciated.
