Yo, noticed the softness around the subjects.

I'm guessing your using some CU filters.
To lessen the softness, try using the smallest aperture, F8, and bounce your external flash.

For the grains shot.. nice concept :thumbsup:
Instead of max zoom and working from 20+cm, might want to try working from 5-6cm, and using only 1-3x zoom, or no zoom at all. The results are alot sharper and showing more details from the grain textures. ;) Oh, yar.. can cheat by cropping away the soft areas too.. hehehe..

thanks for the advise. it is taken at aperture F8, and bounced external flash. i was experimenting with the setups last night...
some of the pics i used olympus tcon17 plus hoya +4 close filter. my hands are not steady enuff for a clear crisp shot. (didnt upload pics)

some are two +4 filters stacked on top of one another

all taken with ext flash with home made bouce card

I see... no wonder bro, I tried the TCON+CU b4 too... but noticed that the TCON glass quality not good.

Stacking 2 CU will give super soft focus outside of hte centre part.

So far from pics taken by ChuanYe, seems the sharpest/cleanest.
He is using a Nikon 6T+Sigma CU with flash+15cm bounce card.

Happy trying out! :thumbsup:

Hi guys...

This is my poor first attempt to shoot the Dark Side lencap with a Dark Side 6T filter on. Got no external flash now... so have to fire the internal flash, pretty harsh.

I got around 30cm of working distance, manual focus and no tripod. I think the shot is quite lousily done, but just show for fun. I did crop off the top and bottom and a bit of the sides, the sides are out of focus... Look at the fringing due to the harshness of the internal flash.

Wah... Somebody got 6T already ah? ;) I'm just waiting for my phayee adapter. Once it's in I'll be joining you soon enough. Small is beautiful... ;p
Are you gonna get anymore CU filters?
