Something different for a change: black and white macros

I’ve been thinking about going to London for three or four days, but after almost an entire week of the typical London weather here in Belgrade I pretty much dumped the idea. Why spend money if I can get the London flair – which I can only stomach in small doses at a time anyway ...

Macro photography is not like riding a bicycle

It’s said you never forget how to ride a bike. Unfortunately, macro-photography is not like riding a bike – at least, that is not my impression, after the first two macro sessions of the season. I do know that I have to close the aperture a bit more – something the reader Jürgen Rötzsch pointed ...

The macro-season is open!

If anybody is like me, tends to develop winter fat during winter, and wants to get rid of it again as soon as possible, they should try macro-photography. 😉 No, I’m not kidding: living the life of the couch-potato during the cold months, it is easy to forget how exhausting hunting six- and eight-legged creatures ...

The Hanged Mosquito

  The following picture of a mosquito caught in a spiderweb could well be one of my best macros. When it comes to image ratio, it is nothing out of the ordinary, the DP3M, paired with the Marumi DHG200 achromatic lens, could perform distinctly better. But of all macros I took in the last years, I like ...

A little Bit of Everything

Lately, I only took my compact cameras with me, the DP2M and the DP3M. As chance would have it, very different subjects popped up in front of my camera. Everything from dogs and cats, to macros with the Marumi achromatic lens and light effects to high-ISO-shots is included. As it currently looks light-wise, I will ...

DP3 Merrill, Marumi, Macro

The last few days, I’ve been on the road again with the Sigma DP3 Merrill and the Marumi +5, and what can I say, I am very pleased with the shots. Some of the pictures are, in my opinion, the best macros I’ve ever taken. I particularly like the photos of flies, especially the colourful ...

Review: Sigma DP3M and Marumi +5

So far, I have only been writing reviews on individual lenses and cameras. With the Marumi DHG 200 on top, the DP3M transforms from a tool for portraits, details and close-ups into a genuine macro-camera, so that the achromatic lens and the Merrill now need to be viewed as an entirely new whole. On this ...

DP3M with Marumi and without

Just like on my last photo tour, I’ve had the DP3M and the Marumi +5 this time with me as well. Shooting macros with this little set-up is a lot of fun. With the achromatic lens on the DP3M you can achieve a max. image ratio of around 1:1.6. Compared to a DSLR with a ...

Additional shots taken with the DP3M and the Marumi +5

Over the last couple of days I’ve been carrying the DP3M with the Marumi +5 with me. Sadly the sun shone only for brief periods of time, making it hard to find insects and spiders. The few, which appeared in front of my lens, were smallish flies and spiders, unsuitable to demonstrate the effect of ...
