    All macro photos go here :D

    Let me post one from my collection. I captioned it as - "He creates and He provides"

    I know the result is not great. It was just a Canon S3 IS P&S camera.

  8. @Italia - some of the shots cannot be classified as macros. They are just close-ups. For Macros, the subject magnification on the sensor should be closer to 1:1 at least.

    I am really interested in Macro photography, especially super macros (Magnification levels in the

    range of 1:2 or more, where subject's image on the sensor is two times its actual size or more).

    Here are couple of my macros.

    MY Macro equipment:

    1) Sony SLT A35 Camera
    2) Minolta 70-210mm f/4 (beercan) lens
    3) Rayox DCR 250
    4) Aputure Wireless shutter release (in case of focus stacking while mounted on a tripod)
    5) Soft diffuser

    This is a single shot, ISO1600, daylight, hand held. A small house fly.

    _DSC4098.jpg

    This is a focus stacked image, from about 15 individual shots. The DOF gets too narrow at this levels of magnification to capture a fair amout of the subject in focus - hence focus stacking. This is again, the face of a small dragon fly (around 7mm in dia)
