Default Fired Up

There some really great macros in the CloseUp forum!!

I'm "fired up" on using my new A55. Still learning the settings - a bit different from my FZ35.

Interesting set. Like the expressions. Toys are cool subjects!

He's sitting in the passenger seat.

Now I just need to get a decent macro lens.

I really appreciate the mind of the artist who creates these caractures. Nice captures Clint.

I believe your camera has a threads on the front of the lens to accept filters. Close up filters #1, #2, and #3 area all you need. Just screw them on largest number first. Each lens allows you to get closer and closer, while at the same time reducing your depth of field. If you have all three attached your dof is virtually a 1/16 inch plain. Great for coins or stamps. I use these filters all the time.

You are correct Bynx - I have a set 1-2-4-10 and used #10 which was really too close for the old fire geezer. Next time I'll try the lower ones.

I'm currently looking at the Sigma 70 or Sigma 105mm for a macro lens that will give me a better working distance.

He is a great artist - my wife gave it to me a few years back.

All the EXIF data has been stripped from the files but I assume you were shooting with the smallest aperture for greatest DOF and obviously using a tripod.
