Macro Flowers – My Sunday Photo

Flower

I ordered some macro extension tubes for my Samsung NX 3000 camera (you can see a link at the end of the post to what I got) this week, and as soon as they arrived I was out in the garden playing around. We are lucky enough to have moved into a house with a lovely garden that, although small, flowers from Spring to Autumn, so I am looking forward to practising my photography all through the Summer with these new tubes to help with the extreme close ups!

All these photos are SOOC (Straight Out Of Camera, with no editing or cropping).

Here are a few more of my favourite shots:

Our shed door - it probably needs replacing, to be honest!

Here are the tubes I got, which will fit all NX mount cameras, and have electrical points to carry through the signals. I’m very pleased with them!

  1. Lovely captures … I heart macro all the away! They bring so much alive in such a refreshing way. Bright and stunning colours captures. 🙂 So much fun awaits you with your new lens; enjoy. #MySundayPhoto

  2. They are all beautiful flowers, well done you. I wish we had wild flowers in my garden, its all rather boring and green.

  3. Brilliant detail, I never thought about getting extension tubes…I may look into getting some

    Thank you for linking up

  4. Great photos. I’m not sure my macro extension tubes I have do quite as good a job. I tend to use my phone rather than either camera to get close ups. Must practise more before I’ve saved up for a macro lens.
