    Advice Wanted Macro - Close Up

    OK, up here north of the equator the days are getting shorter and it is getting colder, too. Where I live it is not the rainy season but the rainier season so outside photo jaunts are fewer. So, stuck pretty much inside I have to photo something, right? And photos of the kitchen get boring...

    Compact camera suggestions for macro and general

    Thinking about adding a small compact for daily carry that can take a nice macro wildflower photo. My current EDC is a Fujifilm X30 (2/3" sensor), but my preferred wildflower kit is a Panasonic micro four thirds with macro lens. The Fuji is borderline okay for small wildflowers, but I'd really...

    Manual Lens TTArtisan 100mm f 2.8 Macro 2x Tilt-Shift

    Still testing out this new lens. Tried out the Shift ability, while only 8° in each direction, it gave me approximately 56 MP in 1:1 format out of my 32 MP sensor in panorama stitching, not bad but not great. I was shooting handheld ao the alignment is not perfect all around but it was easily...

    Micro 4/3 Travel tripod recommendations

    I'm talking about an OS family holiday with an OM-1. I'd rather shoot hand held than take the Gitzo but a small tripod might be nice for the occasional macro or landscape. At this stage, I intend to take a 12-40 f2.8, 60mm macro and 17mm f1.8.

    Working theory to combat diffraction of tiny aperture.

    Hello, recently I was thinking of what could help with the diffraction effect from working at f 11, f 16, f 22 and f 32 (very few lenses can close down that much). One solution is working with either manual or automatic focusing rail, which is more or less mandatory for extreme magnifications...

    Micro 4/3 Review: MCON-P02 Macro Converter

    I thought it would be good to lay down some comments on the Olympus MCON-P02 Macro converter.

After messing around with it for a few weeks, I must say I'm entirely impressed with such...

    Three Ages of Daffodil

    Taking inspiration from "Father Ted" I decided to shoot a single daffodil showing its progression. I took five images but I prefer it with these three. All three are 20+ stacks and were taken using a Fuji X-T3 with Fuji 80/2.8 macro with 2xGodox MF-12 flash units mounted to it.

The lens could not focus on infinity at 200mm( probably incompatibility with my MD to FX adapter). So, I decided to do something... That...
