more macro

so after visiting houston camera exchange and being convinced that i don’t want to do lens reversal but rather to use extension tubes, i was also convinced to go ahead and buy a cheap vivitar 100mm macro lens. unfortunately it’s manual focus, which means that it doesn’t meter on my camera and therefore i have to do a lot of exposure guessing, but in some preliminary results it seems to take pictures that are every bit as good as my sigma – probably even a little sharper.

here’s four i took just after getting it: full res versions
keep in mind that these are handheld and at twilight.
