I was going through all my 2011 photo folders to find pictures for Memories, Dreams, & Reflections 2011, and I found some old photos that I never got around to processing.
This series of photos is perfect for Macro Friday.
When I took these photos, I had been using my dad's D80 with the kit lens. He uses old projector lenses as macro attachments.
This is the projectors lens:
This is showing you how much closer I can zoom in using the projector lens:
And here is the comparison. First photo is zoomed all the way in without the projector lens; second photo is zoomed all the way in WITH the projector lens.
I used to shoot with these "fake" macro lenses all the time when I borrowed my dad's camera. It creates a very deep DOF, so it's a bit harder to get those crisp shots that most people love. It's just so much fun to play with it!
