An even dozen of Spring's finest: adventures with a new lense

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by Harry Lavo, May 5, 2007.

  1. Just received a new, inexpensive Sigma 70-300 4.0-5.6 D lense the other day and among other things, it features 1:2 macro capabilities...locked in between 200 and 300mm's.

    Because the weather is nicer than it has been, because there are lots of people (including myself) with flowers abloom nearby, and because I badly wanted to play with my new lens I went on a macro shooting spree. Haven't done macro in over thirty years so the first efforts are a bit rusty, but given that it's a cheap lens and I'm "out of shape" I don't think these turned out too bad:













    Comments and criticism always welcome.

    Can't see them. But I seen a lot of people do good work with this lens.

    Will come back later to see the images.
