Following on from fiddly things yesterday, more similar today. I thought I would try something more macro with a little stacking as well. A pair of earrings would do nicely. Not teeny weeny but small. Also easy to keep in place, if you don't knock anything.
Black background was foam board from the art shop. Not ideal. When you get close up, it has fibres. Must invest in a small piece of black velvet sometime.
Anyway, I started with the 60mm as close as I could reasonably get. It is not a real macro lens - magnification is 0.5. But focus is quite close, around 25cm. Three shot stack below:
There is an unfortunate orange reflection in the one on the right hand side, but no matter for just now. I will fix that up another day. Also on here it looks a little dark.
Then I thought: get closer. I have an extension tube. This time I stuffed up: somehow knocked the aperture ring but did not notice, careless. But I was using the LCD screen upside down at the time! Took nine images. The stacking went wrong. Artefacts, fringing.... Now run out of time to try again today. So here it is anyway:
An enjoyable experiment for indoors.
