This article is describing the technique I'm using to achieve high quality extreme macro photos, for magnifications beyond 3x, up to 10x (possible up to 20x).This means that the subject frame is between 3 and 20 times smaller than the physical sensor dimensions (i.e. 22.2mm for APS-C).This also means that creatures even below a few millimeters in real life, can almost fill the whole screen, revealing amazing, incredible details, unknown to the naked eye!Here are a few examples:... continue reading

Most of you have Photoshop, don't you? If not Photoshop, at least GIMP? Both have capabilities that you cannot imagine. Many of us use Photoshop for retouching and post processing our photos, which is the most simplistic use of Photoshop. Brightness, contrast, hue-saturation.....and the "little" things. Have you ever thought of creating imagery that you can capture with your camera but never capture with your camera at the same time? Confusing? I'll tell you what I mean around the end of the article.... continue reading
I recently went to a photography exhibition at the Metropoliatan Museum of Photography while on holiday in Tokyo. I found it by chance while filling in time between some other activities, but it turned out to be a big source of inspiration.

My brain then goes into overdrive, ruminating, trying to concoct all sorts of ideas for good photos.... continue reading
Hello, i haven't posted for a while and i wanted to share with you my new photos made with a reversed 55mm lens on extension tubes. I will try to go even closer with a reversed 28mm lens, as you know as the focal distance goes wider the reversed lens zooms even more, so at this focal range i should have about 4X magnification. Will post again with the new results, in the meantime i hope you like my photos, and advice is welcome. continue reading
