Whenever I first try to use my little add-on macro conversion lens after any length of break away from photography, it’s always a shock on viewing my full-size images afterwards to remember just how narrow the band of focus is while using the lens hand-held and wide open.

I tend to forget that because of the extra layers of glass added to my lens, the only way I can create images with enough depth of field to get anything much in focus is by using a tripod and closing down the aperture – aaarrrggghhh! That’s not too problematic when inside at home, but can be really annoying when trying to take anything outside.

The thing is, I initially bought the relatively cheap conversion lens to see if I enjoyed the potential practice of macro photography enough to warrant spending money on a dedicated macro lens, but although I find I really do like getting up close and personal to my subjects, the physical limitations of my particular set up do frustrate me.

Oh well, I guess you win some and you lose some… πŸ™‚
