Picked up an old 50mm Vivitar lens at a great price the other day. (Free)
I have been thinking of trying out another form of macro photography.
I have been reading up on using a bellows to get some interesting shots, but part of the problem is the lack of aperture control from the camera.
Controlling the aperture on this lens is completely manual, so all I would need is a simple adapter and a bellows in order to try this out.
I figured this would be (another) inexpensive way to do some macro work at a different focal length. Should be interesting.
So far, I enjoy having a dedicated macro lens the most, with having 2 lenses attached with a coupler in a close second place. Extension tubes are alright, but not as fun for me.
Has anyone else had fun with different ways to get macro shots?
