I just bought a Canon 77mm 500D Close-up Lens. It attaches right to my lens and makes an instant marco. I just can't purchase the 100mm right now. I'd rather focus on getting the business up and running. So in the meantime, this adapter lets me get the ring shots that i want. but lighting i find is VERY important. You need A LOT. You don't want all of your picture to look dark. Bad bad bad.

    Trish, are you sure that Canon lens will fit on your Sony? I think they have different mounts.

    First off, nice Harley! :)
    Yup, they actually still have the same thread mount. It only fits me 70-200 mm lens, but Canon makes one with a smaller thread which I think would work on the 50 mm.

      Those two pictures need more light in the overall scene. If you are spot metering in the middle of the ring where it is most brilliant, everything else will be too dark. Here are two amazing links of inspiration:

          my main goal today was to get the stone to look nice. i didn't get very creative with it. i just wanted to learn what settings to use in the future

          The info that stays the same:
          canon 30D
          canon 28mm f/1.8
          ISO 200
          aperature prority mode

          1. Click the image to open in full size.
          ss= 1/250
          ap=f/8

          2. Click the image to open in full size.
          ss= 1/180
          ap=f/5.6

          3. Click the image to open in full size.
          ss=1/250
          ap=f/4.5

          4. Click the image to open in full size.
          ss=1/60
          ap=f/5.6

            If you have a lens with 1.8, open it up all the way!
