Learning: Raynox 150/250
I have started this thread about the Raynox 150/250 because I felt that a previous one didn't deal directly with my topic. that was possibly because I had inadvertently got involved with the wrong thread. My apologies for that.
In this thread I would appreciate any and all contributions from novices [myself] right up to experts. I am looking for their comments on the good and bad points of any photograph using the Raynox 150/250 and advice on how to improve.
It matters not whether comments and advice have been aired elsewhere as I am hoping to get all the Raynox 150/250 comments all in the one place. If this has been done a million times previously and that I am just wasting everybodies time and energy than please say so and the thread will expire naturally.
Right then, I shall start. The above shot is my first acceptable, to me that is, taken using the Raynox 250. I have my Pentax K-r set to manual focus. My 18-200mm telephoto lens is set to it's shortest setting. I also have my camera set to 'moving objects' mode and I was using the viewfinder. I was about 4/6 inches away from the subject when taking the shot. I have only cropped and soft focused around the edges in order to eliminate the black circle associated with these type of shots. I think you have all the information that I put into effect for the shot. Let the teaching commence, I hope.
