I would like to photograph an object of around 30mm (1.25") in diameter on a 5x4 " monorail so that it is around 80mm in diameter.
I have two lenses, a 90mm and a 210mm, and around 40 to 50cm of bellows draw.
My initial question is, will I be able to achieve this magnification with the eq uipment I have.
Also, I have a "semi-silvered mirror" that sits in a format frame on the monorai l (I picked it up cheaply a while ago). I believe it makes it easier to light m acro work, but I'm not sure how to use it. If I put it on the monorail, it incr eases the minimum subject to lens distance quite considerably, and I'm not sure at what angle to position it, and also how to light it.
Any help would be much appreciated.
