Well i just got my mpe 65mm lens, along with the MT-24ex dual flash. ALso picked up a manfrotto tripod with a gear head 410. All in all im beyond stoked. NOw to start picking up some tips from M.J about how to use this thing.
Just playing around a little today, i managed to snag these three shots

The first is the congolese at about 3x. It was grown by Green Supreme and given to me jar'd 8 months ago> I pulled the bud out today and took this shot.

This next shot is the same congolese bud, but cropped out of a different section of the photo.

third i took a shot of some 1 year cured krush bubble, 120u. It the lowest quality of the three i kept ie the 90u, 73u and 120u. It doesnt produce a full melt, but does produce a sizzle and a bit of melt. The head on the high is absolutely wonderful. It will be nice to start getting pics of the full melt and see how much contaminant it has. The contaminant we see in the picture is cystolith hairs and capitate stalks as well as some minor green material> I would say percentage of heads is still well above 80% . especialy when you compare it to the actual bud shots.

Many more to come in the upcoming weeks. just gotta practice a little more

hey schroomy yeah this lens definitly does rock, however i gotta admit, i realy dont know how to use it that well> but im gonna spend a lot of time learning, so it will only get better.

Here is a picture of some 73u bchp bubble at about 3x, and then a melt shot of the same stuff taken at 3x as well.

I have not got a macro flash yet but these are my first shots with the mp-e 65mm which like you is the reason I chose a Canon over a Nikon dslr. These were done just with sunlight and freehand but it is an awsome bit of kit and deserves a proper macro light stage as well as a macro flash. Here we come massive fullmelt posters.

welcome to the site perhaps, i am stoked you're here. Even more stoked to hear you got the canon slr with mpe 65mm. The thing is absolutely awesome. NOw i know four members here that have that lens. between you me, MJ and h0megr0wn, we shoul be able to help each other along nicely.
great shots as always man, i look foreward to seeing our growth with this lens.

Here are some shots i took today of the krush bud.The hash from the krush is coming soon.

wanted to add this one of the kief as well> as you can see the bubble shot above may look a quite dirty to you, but if you want to see what single screen kief looks like check this out. A pretty huge difference wouldnt you say.

well this is trickier than it looks, but i managed to grab a few melt shots. I guess with the macro its not as good an idea to pack a big bowl, i think with a much smaller hit i will get way better shots. WHen the hash started to boil and bubble, it grew to much in size, and made for a very difficult focus. Still the parts that are focused show the quality so i will put them up here in my macro thread.

Alright i flipped the screen on this melted blob and found a tiny little clear dome underneath. So i tried shooting it and i can tell its gonna be much easier to shoot smaller hash shots to get that real clear image.

Taking requests? :) How about a shot of a single calyx? Like the ones that grow at the base of the stem (mature preflowers?).

A few more hash shots. I managed to get a dual dome affect on this one, i tried to focus on the dome in one shot and the screen in the other> The one where i focus on the screen almost makes it look like there isnt even a dome there. WHen the dome is clear pure thc is near.

fckn awesome shots B-man!:party1:
my mom always used a canon35mm when i was growing up.
i think theyre pretty rockin. you will be like monkey and Bananaman if you're not already!:brainiac: lol
i know it is Subcool hoo got me interested in Photoging my buds. his shots of his plants plastered all over hightimes made me drop my BB's and i must say, once im a lil un-poorer i will prolly get a Rebel40D then move up from there. im using a dated sony mavica atm that takes discs! i have to finalize the disc every time i want to upload from it to my computer and then because i use the rewritable cds i have to reformat them b4 they can be used again. these things take time and battery life and just generally sux after getting to use the canon 20D this last summer lol.
great work Bubbleman!:smokin:

Hey guys amazing shots.....i have a Canon Eos 300d and wanna get a macro lens, could someone point me in the right direction....thanks.

Hey Truecannabliss, i can point you in the ONLY direction.
MPE 65mm canon macro lens. YOu will also need a good quality tripod and tripod head. I grabbed the 410gear head and the manfrotto tripod 055xpro black legs. The flash is also quite important, you will need either the ring flash or the dual. I hear the dual flash offers nicer light and its the one i use. MT-24EX MACRO TWIN LITE.
I would suggest checking this place out online, it was hundreds cheaper than anywhere i could find it, and they don't sell refurbished or grey market items.

also just picked up the 60mm 2.8 canon lens, and am quite happy with it> it only goes to 1:1 but its got a great range, and is extremly light in comparison to the MPE.

that and i wanted to bump this thread, my first macro shots ever. Maybe i should move this thread to the living hash forums?
