I’ve been meaning to post some of my recent macros, which I’ve taken with the trusty old V1, 10-30mm, Marumi DHG200 (check out my review of the Marumi here) and Raynox DCR-250, but unfortunately I’ve had bronchitis the past couple of weeks. I wasn’t really in the mood for blogging.
In case you are wondering what’s it like to shoot with a set-up like this one, it’s basically the same as with the Olympus OM-D E-M10, 45mm f/1.8 and the said close-up lenses. The only difference is that for lack of a flashgun or built-in flash (V1 has none) I rely entirely on ambient light. As you can imagine, this has its advantages as well as disadvantages. It’s definitely harder to get tack-sharp pictures without flash, especially if the insect or arachnid is moving or if it’s windy. But on the other hand flash can ruin the atmosphere and photos do tend to look all the same. The more I shoot the less I’m certain which one I prefer, flash or ambient light. Hmm…
You won’t pay a penny more than when making a direct purchase at amazon, but I will receive a small commission. Thanks for the support! 🙂
