Fly :: Close Up by patul Fly :: Close Up by patul
INFORMATION :

I never thought my deviation would ever selected as DD. One of the comments say I should have put some description on it. Well sorry, kind of my bad habit, coz not many people really want to know about the setup & how I made this photo before I got DD. So hereby, I want to redempt myself.

SETUP :
- Canon Powershot A70
- Lens Adapter LA-DC52C
- Reversed Yashica ML50mm f/1.9 SLR Lens
- Self-build male-to-male ring coupler

HOW :
- How? I usually go hunting in the morning, bugs are still resting so make me easy to shoot them
- 12mm focal length is it possible? Yes, Reversed Lens Technique. This technique is widely used (a.k.a Macro for the Poor)

What kind of alien is this? The detail, the separation of the green against red and the pin sharp focus in Fly :: Close Up by ~patul make this everyday alien a true work of art! ( Suggested by ph0enix and Featured by serpentinekiss )

This is a great macro shot, and an ingenious method!

Could you go more in depth about how exactly you employed how you managed to use the macro lens on your camera, and what lens you did in fact use?

There's an excellent article about A70 reverse lens technique, here it is [link]

I don't use this technique anymore since I moved to dSLR long time back..

Thank you :)

Hmmm, do you think this kind of method works for other camera's? I just purchased a Canon Powershot S5, which can already take wonderful pseudo-macro pictures. It is compatible with a converter attachment, so do you think this method could be adapted to my camera?

I think it will work, even dSLR can make use of this technique, the thing is when you're using reversed lens the DoF will be very shallow.. so, be patient.. :)

I'm pretty sure I know what that means, but I'd like to be positive; DoF being shallow?
