Get closer

Mark Plonsky, a macro shooter that I look up to, told me that I need to get closer and to put everything I've got between the camera and the lens. I have a great deal of respect for Mr. Plonsky -one look at his work and you should to.

When Mark gives advice you best listen to it...

So here is the end result of the first outing with a Canon Xti + 25mm tube + 1.4 teleconverter + 12mm tube + lens (in that order). Manual mode F11, 1/200, ISO 100. MR-14 EX ring flash set to a 4:1 ratio. Final magnification is about 2.2 times life size.

Thanks for pushing me Mark...
