Ok so I was board and thought I would play with shooting some macro like shots can anyone guess what this was shot with? One hint it is not the 100mm macro.

I'd hazard a guess and say a fair bit of PP was done, as the DoF looks tilted. That in combination with your 24-70, and your 85 nose to nose... That might explain the DoF actually....

No idea. I like guitars.

well I can tell you the only PP done is the B&W/Split tone done in Silver Efx Pro no focus or DOF changes. Not a 24-70 or 85.

I also love guitars, been playing for 20 years but to be honest I don't like the photo much because so little of it is in focus that it actually hurts my eyes to look at it.
I see what you're trying to do with the strings vibrating but it doesn't leave much for the eye to look at.

actually the strings weren't vibrating, I am not particularly found of the picture myself it was really an experiment in paper thin DOF. For anyone who is curious the image was shot with a 70-200 2.8 with a canon extension tube at a focal length of 100mm at F2.8 for 3 sec. I was intrigued by the almost TS look to the image, I am a very big proponent of doing as much in camera as possible so I am always playing around with things like extension tubes and backward mounting lenses.

Well you certainly got what you wanted with that experiment!

I like the way the OOF strings generate waves across the frets much like the pattern of vibration when the string is sounded. Nice print tone. Looks like a Washburn. Been playing 38 years now. The ultimate sport.

I've been playing for about 25yr it is actually a 30yr Ovation it is my carry around guitar. I really think extension tubes are really an undervalued piece of kit, if you already have some good glass it is a great way of adding versatility for very little money, and being as there is no optics it has almost no effect on image quality.

I like this a lot - maybe I'm biased (also a long-term guitarist).


5D and too much glass. Mamiya 645E.

general public clarification:

When it comes to IQ the extension tube is not a part of the equation. The lens however is and macros are specifically tuned to be sharp in close proximity (under magnification). Any lens can be used with an extension tube and often will work quite well but lens will behave the way they were designed and optimized. A lens that is optimized for infinity may not behave well close up.

Very true, and was the reason I was shooting with the lens I did I was trying to see what kind of effect it would produce. I have also used the extension tube with a 100mm macro to great but very different effect. My point in regards to image quality was simply that the tube has no optics unlike a 2x converter.
