This post presents my macro-stacking gallery for 2018.
I’ve started to image with the current setup in September, and by the time I got better at it, the insect season was already over…
Hope for a better gallery in 2019!
All the following images were created using:
-Wemacro stack rail, with or without the Wemacro horizontal stand, controlled via a phone app.
-Canon 550D (old, but good for this job), at ISO 100 or 200, and an exposure time of 1/200s with 2 sec delay, first curtain sync, mirror lock.
-two to four flash units, with different homemade diffusers (foam cups).
-different lenses: Pentax SMC 28mm reversed, Sigma Macro (1:1) 50mm, Nikon 10x microscope objective, Olympus Plan 10x with Raynox DCR 250, Lomo 3.7x. All with different extension tubes to get variable magnifications.
-Software: Zerene Stacker, Photoshop.
A couple of shots showing my rig, with the Olympus 10x microscope objective and Raynox DCR250 lens mounted; the Lomo 3.7x and diffuser at on the right near the stand, as is the 50mm Sigma lens and diffuser:
Some shots are only tests, so they might seem (and are) pretty poor 🙂
While others are of large resolution, so they might take a while to fully load.

Unbelievable! Absolutely stunning macro photography with a lens revered and extension tube, WOW! You extreme macro is impossible to look away from . I’m about half way through your work. Make entomology like the study of magic and exobiology. Masterful work….Bravo.
Thank you very much!
