Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Macro shots using an extension tube, part of Photo Gear Weekly.
- I don't have a tendency to shoot very much in the way of…macro or close-up photography.…And so when I'm wandering around, exploring the city…I usually don't have a macro lens with me.…And sometimes, that presents a challenge…when I find something that I'd like to…focus relatively close on such as this mosaic.…There's a lot of really interesting tiles here,…interesting juxtapositions of colors and shapes…and I'd like to take a picture.…But with this lens, I can only focus…about that close to the subject here,…to the mosaic.…I'm not able to get as close in as I'd like.…
Even focusing as close as possible.…This lens even calls out that it focuses…at a macro distance but I'm still not able to…get as close as I'd like.…And I don't have a macro lens…but I do have another cool little device…that will make it easy for me to focus closer…and that is an extension tube.…It is one of the simplest things in photography I would say,…it's literally just a tube.…An empty tube, no glass in it at all.…It really just has a mount for my lens and the camera…
