Costume jewelry at 2x life. Good subjects are hit or miss. You need to take stacked shots to see the results. In this case 50 shots were taken to get the result you see.

The first is a grain of salt at 10X and the second is grains of salt at 4x. Finally the set up I shot. Let’s just say 10X is a challenge.

This is a photo of a paper towel at 5x life. It’s been cropped and white balance unadjusted because I liked the colour. Makes for an interesting abstract.


Not Aztec Pottery (Three Photographs)

I have been fascinated with macro photography for a long time now. I wanted to move on to Microscope Photography, but that seemed a little ambitious. I have a Laowa 2.5-5x lens and I have found even with an adapter (Nikon to Fuji) it is excellent. However, the suggestion from experts I have read is that one should use microscope lenses above 3X. Last year I invested in Wemacro’s focusing rail, and was using the Laowa and some Nikon bellows. I got some good shots as some of you will have seen. I have since added Wemacro’s tube lens and added 4X and 10x microscope lenses to the mix. The photos you see here at 4x life using a microscope lens are of a circuit board from an old hard drive. It’s one way of getting very nice abstract photographs. More to come.
