    Hello

    I got my Kenko extension tube set today.:D Tried it out with my canon rebel xsi and 18-55mm lens. I was rushing on these pics, UPS man came late and the sun was starting to set.

    I was just messing around in Photoshop with this one

    I tried to use lower ISO on 2&3 but i don't have a tripod:( so i couldn't use any lower shutter speeds

    Last one is the only one properly focused. I would have liked to have seen the others nice and sharp though.

    Actually, to my eye, the focus on #2 is pretty good too -- just not deep DOF and lighting could use some work

    Good start!

    The red one looks way too saturated to me. Not sure if anyone else agrees. Nice start though. I like the last one a lot.

    nice shots!
    you must have been stoked for the UPS to come.

    perhaps a ringflash so you dont have to bump your iso so high. ;)
    but like you said, you were just psyched to get your stuff and rushed to get some pics as the sun was setting.

    post more when you can.:thumbup:

    There are DIY ring flash designs somewhere here on TPF if you search, but you really don't need one yet. You just need good off-camera flash with some sort of modifier (I use my Canon 430EX with a Lumiquest Softbox and it works well). I built a ring and almost never use it. Before I spent any money on a ringflash, I would save for a true macro lens.

    i agree ian...that diy is badass!

    also, i think youre right, i probably jumped the gun on suggesting a ringflash. even a speedlight and sync cable will do wonders.:thumbup:
