Wow! Those are amazing. I think I have found my macro idol . I wish his website had full size images though. Do you suppose he actually can take macro shots and preserve depth of field all the way to infinity? I am assuming the background and subject must be two different shots but I can't read Japanese to see if the website says.

I think Satoshi Kuribayashi was inspired by a famous picture taken by Lennart Nilsson showing a butterfly larvae on a railroad track, with the train approaching and the railroad station in the background. The shot was very much planned. Nilsson had to give the larvae some sedative, and Hasselblad made him a special lens for that very shot! It has sharpness from the larvae to the station building.

Lennart Nilsson is still working, at the age of 85. He's just working on a project where he tries to show what Linneaus saw through his microscope in the 1760:s. The microscope was found some years agoin Gothenburg.

I'd love to know how he takes those shots.
If you look on his official website it looks like he uses specialist/custom made equipment.

An image on his site:

Gave me some inspiration. But macro is hard, so I started with something easier.:-):-):-)
