Random number photo 489. A macro shot of oil in water over a green background. If you’re someone who pays attention to the camera settings for my photos you will notice the question mark for the aperture setting. This is because I was using my regular 50mm lens with a reverse macro ring, so the lens was attached to the camera backwards. This gives a macro effect, but you lose auto-focus and the ability to control your aperture. Unless of course, you were using a fully manual lens to begin with. I think I’ll try that next time actually, as I have a couple old film-era lenses kicking around.
If you enjoy my photographs please consider making a purchase. All of the proceeds from the sale will go directly to help support our friends volunteering at the Seed of Hope in South Africa which is a great organization really making a difference in the community. Every little bit makes a difference, even a small digital download for your desktop!
