I have it! Right at this very second I have my brand new 30mm macro lens attached to my camera, and I am trigger happy. I missed the daylight becuase of traffic in Langley City (I hate that town and its stupid traffic), so most of my shots are inside ones. Already I am loving it! Check this out:
This lens allows me to get right up to just over two centimeters from the object I want to shoot; so that is very close. On top of this closeness, the ratio is 1:1 magnification at a focal length of 43mm, allowing me to get super close, or far back enough to do super wide angle scenes.
Of course, what would a day be without shooting my kitchen plant! I should start a blog just for it. LOL!
I am learning very quickly that with the larger aperture, comes small depth of field, and nice bokeh. It is like the object that you want to do a close-up on, has to be almost flat, or some of it will be blurred away with this small area left in focus.
I just had to sneak this one in.
Since I was sitting right beside it, my pencil, I thought “why not shoot it too”? I tell you, my pencil never looked so good before like this.
