    What is your fun side of photography?

    "That" time or the year is approaching, for some it's already here, the weather is cold and/or wet, the clouds are grey most days, the light is getting shorter every day. For some winter can be difficult to go through (I am affect by depression of winter season). So, the question is What is...

    Looking for cheap light setup for mushrooms.

    Hello, now that autumn is here the mushrooms are starting to spring up and I would like to photograph the. Though I don't have a proper 1:2 or 1:1 macro lens I do have the Tamron zooms that can get very close. But being zoom lenses they do have a very long and large shape to them that will block...

    Pentax Pentax Macro mode (Pentax-A 70-210mm or Pentax-F 35-70) for negative scanning

    Hi all, I recently purchased a very cheap negative scanner on Amazon, and was pretty disappointed with the results. I found online a description of a process using DSLRs using 3D printed parts -- I'm intrigued by the idea - especially since I have a K-1, and the goal is to digitize film from...

    Micro 4/3 On the G9 the 35-100mm f2.8 v1 has, for me, no jitters shooting Video .

    I spent some time today with my "like new" never been used V1 of the 35-100mm f2.8. Got this lens for $370 paypaled and shipped. For stills it is an amazing tool. I also did some shoots with my 58mm Canon 500D close up filter on the lens and the macros were very good (even in comparison 60mm Oly...

    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. This converter works on a small collection of Oly lenses, and I have 2 of them, the 25mm 1.8, and the 45mm 1.8. 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.

    Godox MF-12 Flash Units

    I picked up the K2 set of these (so 2x flash units plus the adapter rings, gels etc for them. Here is a quick test picture using them mounted onto the Fuji 80/2.8 lens, I use the XPro trigger to control them. Unit A was at the 1 o' clock position (as viewed from behind the camera) and was at...

    Manual Lens Zuiko Macro 50mm F3.5

    I recently came across this lens so am placing a reference point for it in case anyone in future searches it in the lenses section. Definitely recommended. I have a much larger DLSR 100mm macro lens which is better when it comes to strictly macro but in terms of overall rendering, this cheapie...

    Manual Lens Kiron 80-200mm f4.5 (Minolta mount)

    This is by far the cheapest buy so far. Plenty of fungus and dust spots inside, but mechanically excellent! It cost me 6 dollars on a local online sale site. The lens could not focus on infinity at 200mm( probably incompatibility with my MD to FX adapter). So, I decided to do something... That...

    Wide Angle Macro - Anyone tried the Opteka 15mm f4?

    Noticed some of these going cheap on Evilbay. Anyone tried one? Any good? Or are they garbage? I read that they are similar to the Laowa 15mm f4 Macros but without the Shift capability.

    On lens macro reproduction ratios

    A Lens's maximum reproduction ratio is one thing that is easily measured and somewhat easily understood, yet many mix sensor crop factors in! Why, WHY?! :confused-95: A 1:1 reproduction makes a half-an-inch ant measure exactly 1/2 inches after the picture goes through the lens to the image...

    Micro 4/3 7 Artisans 60mm f2.8 macro

    I've just got this lens so these are very initial comments. Firstly, wow, it's a solid, heavy beast of a lens. It must be milled from solid adamantine, I reckon. Here it is next to the 35-100 (admittedly tiny) lens that came at the same time. Second comment - as you move the focussing ring, it...

    SiJ 2015 - Day 18

    The Golden Shower tree I've been revisiting for the SiJ has a lot of new growth so I took a fresh photo in IR. Converted in PS and local contrast enhanced in Perfect Effects 8 to modify the pale foliage.

    SiJ 2015 - Day 7

    I mentioned revisiting this tree on Day One and this is the first new leaves and bud. R and B channels inverted in PS and local contrast boosted with ALCE. The brighter new leaves is, I suspect, due to less IR absorption as a protective measure.
