I think this has to be one of the sharpest LB macro shots I have ever seen! Was this done with the double glass optic? I like the shot a lot. Really has a nice feel of texture.

Thanks for your reply - I used my 0.6x wide that came with a macro attachment. it lets you get as close as 2 inches from your subject, and to avoid blur i used a tripod and a f16 disc. I have included an edited version of it as well where I tried a duotone and added some film grain for effect. And yes, it has the double glass optic in place.

I have a Sony A-350 and a new Composer. I kind of thought it was a close-up device but isn't. What do you use for close ups and how do you use it?

Just a beginner with Lensbaby

Hi Tom--

I shoot with A100 and A700. Welcome to the forum!

For macro work, there are a couple of options. Lensbaby offers a couple of options here on the website.

The Macro kit (macro-kit) is Awesome. I've been using mine for quite a while now and love it.

There is also the .6x Wide-angle-macro adapter that c t rebel is using in these pics (macro/wa-adapter). Haven't used that one myself but it seems pretty versatile. It won't give you as many macro options but does have the .6WA.

There is also the option of using the step-up shade (step-up-shade) and adding on 52mm macro diopters (which you may already have or you can find pretty cheap). I have NO idea how well this would work or how it would compare to using the 37mm kit from Lensbaby.

All this stuff and more can be found in the "Shop Now" section of the website. There's a link at the top of this page.

If you want to see examples of what can be done with all this stuff you can go to the "Gallery" link or click on anyone's name to see more of their work.

Hope this helps and Enjoy your new Baby!
