My First Year of Macro Photography

My DIY Focus Rig

A year ago, I started playing around with macro photography. The tiny landscapes of lichens, moss and even rose thorns are fascinating. I use studio techniques and focus stacking software to create my images. I cobbled together an automated focus stacking rail using a fifteen year old DSLR, a ten year old 3D printer, a Raspberry Pi and my own software written in Python.

There will be a future blog post about my equipment, but first, I just want to show off the the results.
