Having completed 39 sessions of radiotherapy yesterday (see my profile), with too many of the possible side effects, I have become quite frustrated at not having the energy to do much photography. So, what could I do that meant I did not have to go too far and could easily rest if I got tired. Back in 1995 we purchased a couple of Canon EF 28-80mm f3.5-5.6 Ultrasonic lenses for use with our Canon EOS50e cameras. Much earlier I had also bought a set of Hoya Close-up filters (+1, +2 & +4). The lens and the filters didn't match and I needed a 55mm-55mm step down ring. Having obtained that I was able to try the experiment of attaching them to my Canon EOS5DIII.The results weren't great, but they are interesting and I think as I get used to the system the results are likely to improve. The images are not big, most have been cropped substantially and there has been some sharpening and other enhancements, to get the colours correct. The light has not been good all day, with lots of cloud, and also a gusty wind. All shots were hand held, with a shutter speed of around 1/320 to 1/400 and an aperture of f8 - f9. The ISO varied from 400 - 4000! The first three I took in our orchard. and the last three on the track leading to our house. 1. 10 Spot Ladybird 2. 10 Spot Ladybird Lunch 3. Harlequin Ladybird 4. Episyrphus Balteatus (Hoverfly) 5. Syrphus ribesti (Hoverfly) 6. Small White Butterfly This afternoon a newly purchased Raynox DCR-250 Super Macro Conversion Lens arrived, but I feel that I will also continue with this experiment as there appears to be some useful mileage in it.
