Hi everybody,

since I got myself an external flash, going above the 1:1 macro range has gotten much easier.

All shot's are with a kiron105 at 1:1 + a raynox 250d (4:1 converter), combining them to a 4:1 macro.

The first 3 shot's were not good enough but after resizing 50% and cropping I found them usable. Don't know what is is, except very small my guess is a real small moth.

The last one are some aphids (no resizing just cropped).

Enjoy

(oh yes any C&C is always welcome)








Ronny

all very good but the aphids are cool.

about the flash, dah, what have i been saying for 2 years?? get it off the camera and you'll really like it more especially with a grip.

here's a good link. this guy is good.

Those're just too impressive! Those little white moth-like creatures, are they the teeny-tiny ones that I see from time to time that are so fragile you dare not touch them in the slightest or they'll be crushed?

Hi Ronny,

My jaw just dropped when I saw these . . .

. . . and it's a good thing that I'm writing this 'cause my mouth still isn't working right!

The only thing that might have made them better would have been more contrast in the subject, but my hat's definitely off -- I've played with both a 1:1 macro and the Raynox closeup, and have a hard time handling either with their respective paper thin DOF -- together, they must be virtually impossible!

As Roy suggested, get that flash off-camera and there will be nothing stopping you!

Wow! Love your thingie - don't think it's a moth but I can't say why I think that as I'm really clueless when it comes to insects, flowers, birds,and animals other than horses and dogs.

Enjoy I did, Thank You.
That first one is just amazing in it's detail and lighting, but still captures the delicacy.

More good ones Ronny, I like those a lot.

Roy ... Thanks for the links ... I think I've had them before from you ... I've got all my bits together now, just in process of fabricating an off camera flash bracket, family commitments taking up my time at the moment, then I'll get it finished. Cheers ... Jack

guess they are of that type.

About twice the size of aphids. Only they move around a bit more.
