Hope you’ve all had a great Christmas. This morning to pass the time with no public transport running around here, nothing open, the weather dull, dreary and pretty uninviting and no way of getting anywhere interesting I thought I’d do a very lazy and simple macro shot of my new watch. Thing of beauty as it is it’s the only thing I can do with the watch as it needs quite a few links removed as I don’t have wrists like an Olympic weight lifter and, anyway, there’s no jewellers open in the foreseeable future until we come out of lockdown again. whenever that might be. I decided not to use my normal macro setup and just pop my Sigma ART 60mm lens, a very affordable and very sharp lens, plus Olympus M-CON macro converter on my Olympus E-PL5, stick it on a tripod with a self-timer and light it with an overhead LED light, it doesn’t get much more simple than that.
No focus stacking, just a plain and simple macro shot. Macro doesn’t have to be expensive. It’s like any other form of photography it can be (become) 🙂 as expensive and technical as you want to make it.
