Whilst photographing wallaby grass seeds for the National Herbarium of Victoria. I felt like being creative with a couple of species for my own portfolio using new and old methods of photomacrography the first species was Rytidosperma monticola I took this with a reversed 36mm movie camera lens at f/5.6 on 13mm of extension with my canon 7d as a stack of 100 images. When turned upside down the stacked image reminded me of a new guinea man dressed in traditional costume.



The other species Rytidosperma caespitosum I took with my 4x5inch view camera using a 121mm angulon lens at a marked aperture of f/45 on 570mm of bellows extension yielding a magnification of 3.7X on the film. I took both the dorsal and ventral views of the seed on different sheets of film. I then scanned and processed the negatives in photoshop.



- The set up -

Hi Saul,
Please find below a larger file of the image (I've cropped it so that you see more details within the allowed size on this site) as requested.
Cheers Peter

Thanks Saul- I was pleased with the results and used the same system for all the grass seeds that I had to photograph - swapping to a reversed 13mm movie camera lens at f/4 with no extension when I required a higher magnification.
Cheers Kanga

Thanks Jorgen,
I like your pollen shots on your website. What technique did you use for the "Hippeastrum flower pollen" photo?
Cheers Peter (Kanga)

Thanks Peter
I used a Nikon plan apo 40x BD 210 mm lens, dark field, and a GIF-filter (green).

Nice to see "vintage gear" part of the action. I prefer the color version, very nice.

Thanks Rane - I see you are from Finland. A girlfriend of mine was Finnish - she was beautiful.
Cheers Kanga
