Household items like you’ve never seen before!

As you may have already read, recently we acquired a pretty cool bit of kit, the Canon MP-E 65mm F/2.8 Macro lens with 5x magnification!

This weekend I had a bit of spare time and thought ‘let’s see what some normal household goods look like at magnification’ So, set the camera up, spent a brief bit of time drooling over a Stackshot and then continued on photographing everything I could get my hands on.

It’s amazing what a macro lens can show you of the everyday normal world that we all see every day. If you have enjoyed these photos please follow our Super Macro and Macro albums on ClickASnap
