Okay, so this is my entry into macro without just using tubes so I can't wait to use this as much as possible. I'm going to pair it with my 60d for now as I get more comfortable with that body.

Today went from sunny to rainy very quickly. I ran out to try my best to find a few things to test it out on. I know the LED ring lights aren't the best for helping with lighting, but I got a cheap one just to try out and see if it will help me with anything later on. It's brighter then I thought it would be, so it might help me when bored or indoors wanting to shoot tiny stuff.

First couple of shots today:

This one was on the run...
