My offical site is here:

I needed some macro practice for a toys project.....
So it was time to capture some of the things just lying around here:
I found this oyster when I was a child.
Normally this 70 million years old fossil is embedded in solid stones.
In this case both parts could be separated
We found this snail at the beaches of Lanzarote:
I had to pay for this nice sea urchin
.and now the toys story: SPUR N
With a little help of "helicon focus" (2 pictures)
This is one of my "TOOTH TOYS"
We got these parts after our visits at a cruel dentist
My parents hoped that we would be willing to visit that person again...
Next step: Using a DIY light tent with the macro box.
light tent and 3 flashes
The toys story can start now:
A different perspective without the achromat.
Close macro at 1.9* zoom slightly cropped.
The DOF has to be similar, following this rule:
Depth of Field When Image Size is Constant
- a leica lens
- my DIY macro studio in a box
- killing the onboard flash
- four bounced slave flashes, some are adjustable - like my vivitar 283: 8 steps
This modification is described here:
- this is a my modified Metz - a powerful and cheap slave:
There was enough space inside for the slave circuit
- minolta achromat No.2
- pneumatic remote release
Not so good:
- a camera without support for external flashes
But this turns out to be an advange: I can use f:8 and 1/2000!
This way the available light is reduced.
- no native remote controls
- my hot pixel
Thanks for visiting my pages! Have a nice day - Sven
