ImageScolopendra dehaani by mygale

Sony Alpha 7RII + Cognisys StackShot + 50mm Componon
Stacked from 129 images (90µm), Helicon B+C.
Flash setup, DIY concave paper diffuser + reflector, 50 Megapixel.
2h working on the setup
2h photography
5h stacking & retouching


The holding mechanism (whatever) is also the reflector.

Injecting water into the antenna, which didn't really work. They dehydrated to fast again so I had to paint most of the antenna.

Nice stack and superb composite “live” images. In the live composite are they individual images or stacks? Is the centipede placed on a reflective surface?

Looks like he may have TWO buddies...there's something suspicious about 45 degrees up and to the right of the first buddy, just above the antenna.

All individual, and with burst mode. It was non stop running for 3h. It's in a plastic container.

It had many buddies, I cleaned it before by hand with water and brushes but one survived that.

Also flickr explore with 70k+ views.
