Photo 52 – Week 2 – Vision

This weeks topic was “Vision”. I suggested this to the group because I wanted to try and get a good close up of my wife’s eye. I keep telling her she has beautiful eyes and I wanted to try and capture that in a picture.

To do this I purchased a set of extension tubes that allowed me to get in extremely close with the camera and still focus. I was about 4 cm from the subject with this picture. The important thing when buying extension tubes is to ensure they maintain the electrical connection between the camera and the lens otherwise you lose aperture control.

Anyway, below are 2 pictures, one of the eye and the other with a little bit of selective colouring.
