The ultramacro lens for Sony Nex

Actually I do not think the Yasuhara Nanoha is not really a macro lens. It is more like the missing link between a macro lens and a microscope.

The lens comes with a  3 LED lighting which is fixed to the lens. A screw driver is included, so you could remove it. There is also a battery box (which is fed by 2 AA batteries) and a USB cable.

The lens has a maximum aperture of 11 and stops down to 32 and the focus works between 11 and 16 millimeters. I do not need to tell you what that means for depth of field.

I started a Flickr group dedicated to the Yasuhara Nanoha. If you want to see some special things nanohified let me know…

Drilling through light

It is Monday, autumn and I shoot a macro again. Today’s topic in macro monday is metal – so I chose a drill. And I drilled for light because this was the strangest thing ever I had to light. Whatever you do, you have to live with the highlights, the flares and the unwanted reflections.

One of the days when I know why I love and hate photography.

I tried to shoot another macro but wanted to use a different light. A bunch of paper was used – you can see the edges and lines of the paper.
A white LED was the light source from the left and a laser pointer was used from the top and aimed between the paper.
In post processing I used the tonal contrast filter from Nik Color Efex. This enhanced the edges and enhanced the abstract effect of the picture.
I can imagine this quite good on a wall.
