Thanks Brad. Gear is all here - https://beingmark.com/macro-illustrated/ - search page for camera. But basically the Pany G6 + Oly 60 with achromats and snooted flash. DOF is what you get with any camera setup - though not all gear is equal, difference here is how it's applied - taking account of what's available to fit into the plane of focus to give the impression of deep dof, often referred to as the magic angle.Beautiful work and write up. I would like to know what camera/ lens you used; the DOF is great.
The reference was further back in ‘Being Mark’ ..... I never forgot that!Thanks PH... This is an old thread and I had to look for mention of a stick and couldn't find it. Was there a reason you mentioned a stick? I do use a stick a lot but up the ladder here wasn't the time or place, this time.
Thanks 11... As long as the glass is of a quality it doesn't impact that of the lens itself any true (not just a magnifying glass) achromat will do.Great photos! Absolutely stunning. This makes me want to dive into macro more and more. It seems like achromatic lenses are hard to come by in M43 filter sizes, the only one I've seen for sale recently is a Sigma AML-1, would you imagine that'd work for the Olympus Macro as a starter way to play with more advanced macro concepts than just stock lenses?
