Good afternoon! My name is Ethan Beckler and I am a macro photographer from Illinois. I use the Olympus Em1 mark 2 along with the Olympus 60mm macro lens, and Raynox 250 and 202 macro filters. My favorite subjects to photograph are snow crystals, sand grains, spiders, bugs, butterfly wings (the scales) and hoar frost. I will share a few images and if you have any questions feel free to ask! They are all focus stacked images....used Helicon for stacking. For the sand grain I stacked 31 images that were High Resolution 80mp raw files, as the sand grain is 1/4th of a millimeter in diameter.

Thank you so much! That's a 2mm x 3mm view of hoar frost on a morning where temps dipped to around 5 degrees F. It was on the edge of a leaf. Completely still morning. I set my camera to F5.6 and no flash and took 110+ images using focus bracket mode and stacked in Helicon.

A lot of people said it looks like Superman's home planet....

Nice photos. I've got a lot of cameras and lenses but I have the most fun with my Olympus bodies and focus-bracketing 60mm lens.

I especially like #5 also.

The physical form of those prisms -- open on one side with curled-in edges -- is not one that I recall seeing before.

What details do you remember about the weather conditions that produced those?
