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... 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
The much talked about headlines now (in Europe) is the extreme cold weather we are experiencing.In Geneva, the strong wind, cold weather and water from the lake combination created icy condition at Lake Geneva waterfront.Some resulting in very interesting ice formation.This picture earns me US 5.00 since DT selected it to be in the IN THE NEWS section.The rest are here as follows:-Stay warm and stay safe. continue reading
The crazy summer finished with a funny photo session.It seems to be difficult to take pictures from a jumpy scooter and much faster moving banana,carring people on,who are jumping.Troubles are coming when trying to focuson the banana.But some frames have survived and are published.... continue reading
This is the final in my series of blog entries on Antarctic travel.Everything about extreme travel in Antarctica requires detailed planning.You will certainly want to document your journey, for yourself, and probably for sponsors.You should certainly contact people who have undertaken such an adventure before for advice.Light weight and robust are certainly major considerations.But simplicity, ease of use, and redundancy come in next.Things that work perfectly every time in normal conditions... continue reading
The weather here in St John's Newfoundland In Canada has been very unsettled and cold lately thus I have not had much chance to go climbing or take any pictures either. My question is this weather wise around here the windchills have averaged around minus 25 to minus 30 degrees celsius, so I'm wondering what if any effect this may have on my camera [Nikon D90]. The picture you see here was one I shot a couple of weeks ago and at that time the temp was minus 25 degrees celsius. So if any of my fellow... continue reading
On a nice Friday's evening I've went to the new skateboard arena of Yad-Eliyahu, Tel-Aviv,Israel.If extreme sport skating is on your mind, this is the place for you.Kids from the age of 10 are performing stunts that I'm, not sure a grown man would agree to consider to do. :-)If extreme sport photography is on you mind. this is also the place for you. these kids will perform amazing stunts just so you could take their picture and send it to them.Here's a picture of a skateboard and on... continue reading
I went to a cliff this past weekend with some friends who are rock climbers, to see if I could get a few good shots.It was a difficult shoot!For one, I hate heights, yet I had to climb down this very steep rock-strewn trail to get to the bottom of the cliff, in order to take photos shooting up the cliff at the climbers.The only equipment I brought was my Nikon D70s with my telephoto/macro lens.I was very careful carrying it around the rocks, but it still got a good ding on the side when... continue reading
