A New Toy!

I have been having fun taking close-ups of things but my lens won’t focus on anything that’s closer than about a half a meter. Being a snap-happy-tourist-grade photographer, I couldn’t really justify the expense of a macro lens, so I ordered a set of these diopter things. The set has four lenses in graduating magnifications that attach to my regular lens like a filter. I got them today and have been messing around with the +2 one.

    Looks like the diopters give great results.

  3. so, diopter (‘ve heard of da werd, but don’t know what it is) — is assisting you with close-ups much closer than 1/2 meter or so. and you’ve only just begun?
