Macro

Hunters of light POTW Macro Shaun McCabe
Macro photography is a unique form of photography that involves photographing small objects to make them look life-sized or larger in the photo. The usual subjects include flowers and small insects, which we don’t normally get to see up close with the naked eye. Everyday objects take on a new perspective when viewed from close range, so your garden or a local park can be the perfect testing ground. Photo ©: Shaun McCabe

What an amazing image, well done Joggie Van Staden, thank you for uploading your image of the eye of one of your champion racing pigeons.

Image Description

I took this with A Pentax K1000, Ektachrome 64ASA slide film with a home-made lens setup using a Leitz 10X Microscope lens mounted on a PVC pipe. Midday, full sunlight with the camera on a tripod – setting off the shutter with my knee via a remote cable and focusing by moving the birds’ eye closer and further from the lens. Great fun!
