PB, go for it! Lotsa fun, and it can be really fascinating. I'd look forward to seeing your shots.

The beer shot posted above is a crop out of a much larger image; I wanted to get rid of the out-of-focus area off centre -- my lens has maybe 4mm depth of field at the max, and that's at f8. So shooting a curved glass means not much of the image will be in full focus.

I've attached a downsized & different version of the beer bubbles -- this one was taken under natural / ambient light and you can see the amber colour much better (whereas the one above has top lighting only to emphasize the bubbles). I find the bubbles are less punchy due to the longer exposure & natural lighting though. Unlike the larger version posted here, this other version has been heavily sharpened to make the bubbles stand out.

Oh, I totally will Doug. I just need to find the money. I'm on a fairly tight budget at the moment, so I'll have to not eat for a few days (or a week).

A few more shots with my homemade closeup adapter. Actually this one is just an old 50mm Konica Hexanon lense held inverted up to the 18-55mm lense that came with my D50. I get a bit better depth of field with this setup than I get with my other homemade closeup (Minolta 50mm inverted and mounted to Nikon 70-210mm with plates). I really need an easy to adjust tripod and remote trigger for these shots but holding a lense on the front of your camera is nearly impossible at the best of times. Maybe it's time for a real adapter.

This guy was actually challenging me for control of his flower. Total body length is maybe just over 1cm...



red flowers a bit less than 1cm across...

Cool shots -- they've got kind of a dreamlike quality to them. Nice saturation too. Was it overcast when you took them?

This afternoon it was somewhat overcast so I thought it would be a good time to try some shots. A little easier on the shadows when the sun isn't so bright.
