    More from my latest series: "F'in With The Tubes." At this point, I'm just taking pictures of crap for the sake of taking pictures of crap.

    All with the 50mm lens and two tubes (the 12mm and the 36mm).

    Compact Flash Card. This one was shot in available light at f/14 with a 10 second exposure. Yeah, on a tripod.


    Guitar Pick. Same setup as above (but with a slower shutter speed).


    Group Of 3-Volts. This one at f/14 and 1/60th with the SB-800 set up on the table remotely (off the upper right corner of the image) and set to an EV of -1 and diffused through a plain sheet of white paper.


    The flash meters remarkably well in TTL mode, even with the tubes on! I did notice that the flash output was different with the camera's eyepiece covered. Must be some light leaking onto the meter's sensor through the eyepiece!

    Do you guys have any recommendations for literature that would be helpful to someone who knows nothing of photography and just recently got a p&s?

    Even in reading the beginning of this thread I realized that I dont know ANY of the basics and I gotta get that down before i know what the hell you guys are talking about

    What does a longer exposure do for you on a stationary object such as the compact flash card? Because it's not moving, does it allow more light to give a better picture?

    There's all kinds of free stuff on the net regarding the basics. Here's one:

    http://www.thepeaches.com/photography/Basics.htm

    Because of the website build, it's kind of a difficult read. But if you can cut and paste it into a word processor and print it out it might be easier.

    Photography For Dummies is another good (and inexpensive at $15) option. I'm actually a big fan of their SLR Photography book, too.

    Also, if you've got a widely-used camera make and model, a lot of times you can find books that are specific to its functions and features. Magic Lantern books cover the DSLRs pretty well. Try searchin Amazon for "A Short Course in xx" replacing xx with your camera's make and model.

    It's as simple as that, yeah. If the object isn't moving and I can mount the camera on a tripod, I'll go Aperture Priority, stop it down to f/10-f/14 (for increased depth-of-field), and let the shutter speed fall where it may for a proper exposure.

    Also, to keep the picture as sharp as possible, I use the D200's mirror-lock feature and one of two other things: 1) use a remote shutter release, or 2) use the shutter release timer. That way, the vibration imparted to the camera from mirror movement and photographer clumsiness are minimized.

    Something tells me even if the upcoming challenge is something like "vast, wide open landscape" Glenn will find a way to do it with his new tubes

    They are pretty darn cool.
