Macro virus

Small things have been fascinating me for a long time. I love getting close and try to bring out the details that we normally don’t see or do not really pay attention to. Both under water and on land I have the need to shove a lens right up the nose of little creatures.

It’s quite a challenge to have enough light and to focus on these small things but sometimes, it works and when I look back at the picture on the computer I just think WOW!

I recently bought some Kenko extension tubes and have been wrestling with them together with my Canon 100mm.

Today I found this little jumping spider (Salticidae). It was a lot of fun trying to get him to smile at the camera ( and not jump on it ).


Playing with the camera

I have been playing a bit with the magic lantern firmware for my camera (canon 60d). I tested the focus stacking on an orchid flower and used the trap focus feature to try to get a macro shot (100mm + Inon ucl 165) of a fly.

Pretty cool stuff! Definitely going to play some more with this.
