Photo of the week

I love to do macro photography and especially of the many flowers my sister has. I have been shooting her yard for at least 25 years.

The first macro I did was with a Pentax ME super 35mm and a 70-200 close focus lens.

These were taken with a Vivitar (Phoenix) 100 mm macro lens. For a cost of under $100 used it is as sharp as any I have seen. It is a lot like the Nifty Fifty Canon 50mm f1.8. Plastic and kind of clunky when it focuses. It makes a noise and is slow to focus. How ever it is tack sharp.

I also used a Giottos MT9180 tripod that allows you to get very close to the ground.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did taking it.
