    Large Format Macro Images

    I did a search for Macro photos in the "Image Sharing & Discussion" forum, and was surprised to find nothing.

    Does anyone have any LF macro photos to share? I'm interested in seeing what can be/has been done.

    There are some examples in the flowers thread and probably in a few other places as well. I've posted some examples with a Tominon 75/4.5.

    Phaelenopsis 2:1
    Heirloom Iris 1:1

    Then this was done with a 125/56. Fuji -NW at 1:1
    Alpine foget-me-not 1:1

    I can contribute - This is part of a series I am working on. The figure is less than 1/8" tall. I started them using MF, but have since moved to 4x5 using enlarging and process lenses. I've also tried stitching scenes using a movable DSLR back, which look good too, but are basically a lot more work/time for the same quality compared to the 4x5 scans.



    Taken with a little 55mm Repro-Claron @ f/11 on Delta 100 I believe.

    Here is a closeup experiment of British Soldier lichen. I think it is about 1:1 I can't remember what lens, but it was likely one of the Nikon SW I had back then. Toyo 45 A II with 6x7 Toyo back. Fuji RVP




    The impression I got from this experiment was that it is possible to take 1:1 photos with a "normal" lens, but it was damn hard to do in the field. Composition is a problem with the clumsiness of the tripod, and extremely dim ground glass. Critical focus is also a problems with camera shake and narrow depth of field.

    Had to pull the negs to confirm what I shot.
    4x5 FP-4 in Pyro-PMK through a 135 mm Zeiss Tessar stopped down all the way on an old Compur resulting in a f.64 plus-ish with the bellow extension on a Toyo 45G.
    It is a female deer skull I found out on my family farm in NW Indiana. It served well as a subject during my close-up phase and has resulted in a large collection of bones.
