Looking closer… #4

Variations of an object. Rather than posting 4 different objects I decided to stick to one object for today. I captured 4 close-ups. Tomorrow I will use a similar approach, but will use “photo stacking”.

Focus stacking is a digital image processing technique which combines multiple images taken at different focus distances to give a resulting image with a greater depth of field (DOF) than any of the individual source images. Wikipedia 

Looking closer… #3

Episode 3 of my new macro series „Looking closer“. Today I found 3 objects which caught my attention. Tomorrow I will concentrate on one object and create 3-4 variations of one item. Hope you are all healthy and in good shape. Happy days. Reinhold

Looking closer… #1

On Friday I received the macro extension tubes for my Fuji camera. I ordered two of them.
One with a focal length of 10mm, one with 16mm. You can use them separately or combine them.
They are mounted like a lense to the camera and then you mount the lens to the extension tube(s).
All camera settings are still working. But you better change from auto to manual focus.
They turn my kit zoom (18-55mm) into a sort of „macro“ lens.
And you can’t beat the price. They ship for 30€. Not the expensive Fuji originals. Mine are produced by Meike.
I will use these extensions to start my new series: Looking closer.
These are the first 4 images I captured with the new setup.

Happy days.
Reinhold
