Lets guess what that might be... i say its some kind of bathing salt maybe xD
I guess those are cells, its from a Phalaenopsis plant.
hehe okay, i'm persuaded xD
what lens are you using and/or what is the setup?I do a 2 lens, Sigma 105mm Macro + reversing ring attached to my Canon 50/1.4 and the focus is very much a challenge for certain subjects. oddly enough the Canon MPE-65 lens did not offer 'much' improvement in that regard although the edges might have been sharper....but even then it was certainly NO lock on the focus even @ f/16 (smallest it would go)do you use mirror lock up? use live view to focus @ x5 or x10 if you canAND absolutely no movement near the tri-pod....mine sits on a carpet, bad news...if I breathe too hard you can see it giggle on the live view
Hey +Timothy Lauzon, it's interersting to read about your experience with the MP-E 65. Must be hard to handle. The tethered shooting program that came with my camera really helps me to fine-tune focus. Maybe that could help you too.
+Timothy Lauzon This is my lens-contraption. It is a lens from a micro-film viewer squeezed in some macro tubes with the aid of a lamp-holder and some bicycle tube. http://www.flickr.com/photos/frisno/6015095673/This is what the rig looked like a while ago when I tried to sample some pages of a book. http://www.flickr.com/photos/frisno/7908028620/The rail is made up from scraps found in a wrecked pipette robot.Here's a pic from an failed attempt at a tissue roll. http://www.flickr.com/photos/frisno/7907980340/Yes, I use a mirror lookup. I also have a glass of water nearby to catch any still moment. Unfortunately there aren't many when you live on the 3:rd floor.The shot in this post is live view in camera and just one shot. I find it cumbersome since I have to change the exposure to see anything in the live view. Using the puter is preferred unless I put it on the same table as the camera.
interesting! well I like the creativity of the setup, that's right I remember you saying that about the water :Dit's amazing how little it takes to make the live view dance @ 5x or 10xvery cool, I need to make a rail myself....sliding the subject on a piece of paper will only get you so far!
