Fan Of… #58 — 10+ Macro Filter

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan ofโ€ฆ” (see below for how to).

This is also a second entry for Sunshine’s Macro Monday ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

This week’s Fan Ofโ€ฆ is my new Neewer 10+ Macro filter. This was part of a filter kit that I got for my standard 18-55mm Canon lens.

The lensball had magnified the moss; so I thought I’d explore this futher by trying for a couple of macro shots using my standard 18-55mm lens, resulting in…

This mini moss forest with tiny waterdroplets (almost invisible to the naked eye) was as detailed as I could get with the standard lens, but fortunately, I had my new 10+ Macro filter with me, and these are the resulting shots ๐Ÿ˜ƒ The waterdroplets were formed from tiny melting ice crystals and were smaller than the eye of a needle (thanks Sweetie, for the analogy) ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

    1. They’re good fun to play with. Keeping the ball & camera steady can be a challenge, so yay for auto-focus. I’ve got some more shots to post where I’ve sat the ball on a stump or on a tree branch ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
