Hello Everyone, this Soumya Sumitra Behera (shortly call me SouSuBe) an enthusiastic budding photographer from the French Heritage town of Pondicherry. From the inspiration of Thomas Shahan and the technique he used to produce high Magnification Photography of small world living creatures, today I’m going tell you about Reverse Ring and Extension Tube Techniques.
A Reverse Ring is an metal ring mount, which has a dedicated camera mount on one side and a threaded mount with dedicated diameter.
As the name implies, It’s a hollow empty tube, that extends the distance between your camera (sensor) and the optical lens. The shorter focusing ability of a lens is attained by how far the front (focusing glass) element could be moved away from the focal point(the sensor). Extension Tubes comes in two types of constructions – without Focusing ability and with Focusing ability and various lengths like 12mm, 20mm and 36mm in one package. Set the Shutter speed to 2-4 sec (time, you would take to remove the lens) and remove the lens. For people who are interested in macro photography or a beginner to macro and want to take some jaw dropping pictures with inexpensive gears without a dedicated macro lens, it is recommended to have those tubes with just a beginner level DSLR together with the kit lens.

And remember – my English is not perfect, so if you see some grammar mistakes please forgive me. If what I’m writing is obvious for you then maybe you know some tricks that could be helpful for others (including me). If you see some interesting insect and he is running away from you do not hesitate to follow him. Thanks for taking the time to put that together Marcin, I am sure it will be very helpful to people looking to enter the fascinating world of macro. One other thing that can be of aid if your subject is suitably non moving is focusing rails, these can greatly help getting focus and composition spot on, when going in really close. My Canon G11 really struggled with focusing so close and set on Macro, so I referred to my camera manual on how to use manual focus. The large surface of the foam-core reflected the flash from above, slightly behind, and to the side of the camera.You can see how this directional, but soft macro lighting brings out the texture and the detail of the inside of this daffodil.
Si la luz que pasa por la ventana es fuerte, pon una cartulina blanca en el lado del sujeto que queda frente a la ventana. Usar el flash integrado de la EOS no suele recomendarse para los primeros planos, ya que puede ser demasiado potente para una exposicion correcta.
Prueba con uno o varios flashes Speedlite en una camara EOS, con un cable para flash Canon o con el sistema inalambrico Speedlite. Si tienes que usar el flash integrado, prueba a colocar una cartulina blanca alrededor y por encima del sujeto. And here I would like to give you an small introduction and tutorial on how to take beautiful Macro photographs with the best alternative to Macro Lens.
These techniques are proven to be effective towards close-up photography and great for starter who love the tiny world.


To bring you a clear view of how it works , just recall the principle how a lens covers a large view of the subject and captures down to a small area at the sensor.
You have to be very patient and sturdy to get those nice shot of magnified eyes of those beautiful creatures. Their reproduction, even in part, is forbidden without the explicit approval of the rightful owners. So it's your choice - home made diffuser or ready to use professional flashgun for macro photography.
Of course if object is big (like huge ugly spider) we could change zooming to keep all object in frame.
Butterflies make me sick sometimes – 20 minutes chase through some meadow and no single picture because this lovely creature decided to go over the hedge. I have Pocket Nature publications about Insects and another one about Butterflies and Moths. Take your time and make as many photos as you can – more then half of them will go to the bin, rest will be just fine, and 5-10 should be brilliant. Originally it specifically referred to photography where the image captured by the camera was the same size (life-size) or larger than the subject. I use two large 32 inch by 40 inch white foam core boards that are readily available at art supply stores.They act as great reflectors, are firm, lightweight and easy to carry. I'll simply say that the little built-in flash on point and shoot cameras is absolutely no good for macro photography.
The macro photography tutorial above was written while using my point and shoot Canon camera. Si trabajas en interiores, situa tu sujeto en una mesa junto a una ventana y usa la luz del dia como iluminacion.
La distancia entre el flash y el objetivo puede suponer que gran parte de la iluminacion se proyecte por encima o por el lateral del sujeto. Podras usar el flash mas alejado desde el sujeto que con la camara, para ayudarte con la exposicion, y tambien puedes mover en angulo el cabezal del flash para que la iluminacion llegue al sujeto. El flash que llegue al sujeto tambien se reflejara desde la cartulina, suavizando y difuminando la luz.
The same thing is just reversed – when a lens reversed, objects that appears to be smaller at the Back end, is magnified to a larger view at the Front end. For a lens, to take high magnified image of tiny objects, is by how close the lens can focus. These are also being used by Wildlife Photographers to reduce the minimum focusing distance of large telephoto lenses to make it to there convenience.
Some times, you will still need a extra light which I compensate with external flash bounced and diffused towards the subject.
However, the current meanings of ‘macro’ and ‘close-up’ have blurred and the two terms are now used almost interchangeably. You may also be interested in these outdoor macro photos taken with my Canon 5d DSLR.Macro Photography Technique.


Jugar con el angulo y la distancia de esta cartulina te permite controlar los efectos de iluminacion. No necesitas ningun soporte, solo ponla cerca del sujeto (pero fuera del campo de vision del objetivo) cuando captes la imagen. Con un Speedlite y una cartulina reflectante blanca puedes crear una iluminacion excelente.
Together you have to be very keep in finding your subject, since they are in very tiny world.
Construction tips – empty box after some sweets with hole for flash and with two layers of tissue at the other end.
But tripod could be useful when you make photos of flowers, they are usually very patient and if there is no wind they stay still. You could keep them in your hand if you want (I don't like it) and untill you do something strange there is no risk. The third photo simple shows how close the camera gets to the pink hyacinth and its still not close enough to be a true macro photograph. If you are not suing a point and shoot camera like the one used in this macro photography tutorial, here are other options to think about for macro equipment.Macro Photography Lighting.
Alternative to the inconvenient fixed lengths of the tubes, some photographers use Macro Bellows, which works on same principle, but provides a excellent control over magnification. This tutorial is not about software so I’ll leave it (maybe for another tutorial) but remember about this simple rule.
So imagine that you have some nice insect sitting on the grass and there is some stick behind - brown stick.
Main point here is to keep balance between ISO (to keep it low so there will be no noise on your photo) and exposure time (to keep your object still=sharp, because you are trying to freeze that moment).
What I was doing for last 10 months was keeping F numer at 11 all the time and trying to find balance between ISO and Exposure time to get enough light. So switch your camera to manual focusing and moving your body find sharpness on your object.
Only few of them will really enjoy your presence - mosquitos, ticks and other bloodthirsty creatures.
When you'll be experienced with settings and other things you'll have time for composing your frame like an expert.
Rules are the same like for any other photography - if your insect is looking right give him more space at the right so he is not looking on picture frame.
So if you have a choice - green grass and green background or green grass and yellow background it's more interesting to choose that second one. Of course it depends - if your insect is yellow it won't look good on yellow background (but i've never seen yellow insect).

    But it's worth getting an idea of what the maximum.
