| Re: Shooting with Tubes |
I was out today and for the first time stacked tubes, the 12mm and 36mm, mounted on the Nikon manual focus 180 f/2.8 AI-s ED, creating a focal plane that is razor thin, especially wide open as happened with this shot. Shooting handheld with this much gear hanging in front of me, getting critical sharpness was a challenge. In fact, this is the only one of five or six shots that achieved it. Of course, this ladybug had no interest in standing still, or even remaining on the top of the leaf. It was everywhere! But I love this shot. It is un-cropped, merely reduced in size, converted from RAW to JPG and treated with a modest pass of Smart Sharpen. Tubes rock!
