p.1 #1 · Light testing...1,2,3..


The macro rig finally gained some level of completion with the mini-ballhead, this now allows for the flash to be right on top of the front element of the lenses (even with the ETs/TCs)

That coupled with a DIY "parcel box diffuser" with some kitchen tissue for diffusion.

Here are some results at varying magnifications
1. Dreamy, 1:1


2. Housefly closeup, ~3:1


3. Mealy bug, 2:1


4. Tiny caterpillar 3:1


5. Tiny jumping spider trying to look cute - puppy like. 3:1


6. Ant sipping on a drop of honey. 3:1


All are single handheld shots.
Note to self: Really need to accelerate technique and will to start stacking

Thoughts folks?

Cheers,
Hayath

Looking good, although I don't like a large area of white as a background.

Thank you Harold.
In the case of the fly, did not have a choice..it chose a white sack to go perch on

Thank you Denis. Did miss critical focus on the caterpillar, but shared for the light

If you have PhotoShop open the image and go to the Image menu.

Select Replace Color. Check Selection then slide the Lightness slider to the left to give a grey which I think looks good as a background.

I don't really know what I am doing with the dark arts of PS! It should be possible to make the background coloured but grey works for me in this case.
