Default E-3/35 macro (natural light)

I'm working on a solution to attach the 35 macro to the ringlight and shoot at 1 to 1. I did do some without flash.

Hi Harj,

The first set was the 50 f2 macro. I also had the EC-14 converter and the Canon 250D closeup lens. I don't know what the actual magnification is, but it seems close to 1:1. Lighting is the Metz MS-15 ringflash.

The second set is the 35 macro. Sharpness between the two is close. Working distance with the 35 is limiting my ability to get lighting to the subject. No go with the Metz with the standard adapter. I'm close to a re-work on the adapter which moves the lens farther into the ring which I hope does the trick.

Anyway, the 35 macro shots are natural light only.

Thank for looking.

Greg

Satire,

I've been having trouble with bee shots all spring and I've yet to see a grasshopper, so thanks for showing great shots of both.

Greg, those are excellent. On another level of macro/closeups from what I do. One or two appear to have some sort of illumination added. Fill flash or reflector?
