Extreme closeup of indoor flowers

Mar 23, 2024 | Flowers and Plants | 0 comments

A few years back I picked up some cheap extension tubes for closeup photography. If you don’t know what these do, you put these tubs which have no lenses inside, in between your camera and your lens. This extends the amount of space between the back element of the lens and the cameras sensor. This moves your closest focus distance to become much less than normally. So, I pulled out my 30+ year Nikon AF Micro Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 and put on 3 extension lens tube (12mm+20mm+36mm).
With the longer daylight, my indoor plants are loving the extra sunlight and starting to grow and flower. First up is my spider plant, Chlorophytum comosum.

60mm | 1/400s | f/16 | ISO 9000

60mm | 1/250s | f/16 | ISO 12800

60mm | 1/250s | f/16 | ISO 7200

I then cut off one of the new plantlets and budding flowers and placed it into a jar of water for it to take root. I then noticed all these very tiny bubbles along the inside walls of the jar.

60mm | 1/400s | f/9 | ISO 5000

Finally, my Shamrock plant, Oxalis triangularis, was also flowering beautifully. So got a photo of it too.

60mm | 1/125s | f/8 | ISO 5600

This low-cost photography equipment opens a whole new world of photography! I need to explore this some more. Thanks for viewing my photographs and stopping by to read my blog! Cheers, Jeff
