My challenge for 2017 is that I’m going to make a macro shot every day and post it here.

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.

I had a chance to go for another photography dive trip. Again Indonesia however, this time it was Lembeh. Lembeh is known for its muck diving. I added another strobe to my setup and also bought another macro wet lens. I tried to use them as much as possible ( stacked ).

You can find all the pictures in my gallery.

For my dive trip to Bali I thought it would be cool to give underwater photography a go and decided to buy some equipment. The results you can find in the gallery.

I really enjoyed making pictures underwater, and although it was a bit of a challenge working out the best settings, it was truly relaxing. I’m looking forward to the next trip!

Photos from Cuba [more to come]

I’m still processing all the pictures I took in Cuba and it will probably still take a while so thought I give you already one to get into the Cuba mood.


Playing with water drops

Blogged by Twan as Daily life,Photo — Twan Sun 2 Dec 2012 11:02 am

Yesterday I felt like doing a bit of a macro-ish weekend project and thought it might be cool to play around with water drops. I experimented a bit with on how to generate water drops in a blue washtub of water. In the end, I used one of those zip lock bags filled with water and a small hole in one of the corners. I hung this bag then about 1.5 meters above the tub and let it drip.

Camera on tripod with my Canon 100mm mounted. To capture the drop I needed to use 1/250 second shutter time. Due to the lack of an external flash, there was no way around using my integrated flash. Still, for a first setup I’m pretty happy with the results!

7pod chilli vodka

There, I’ve done it (again). On Friday I squeezed one of my 7pods in a bottle of Vodka. Today, a perfect day (gray outside) to do a still life picture. Next week, it will be time for a shot. Any volunteers?

Actually, I’m making this post to checkout the android app for wordpress. Most important functionality is the picture upload.
