"first shot w/ reversed 24mm"


Phoenix, US
          

Here you go. This was fun and challenging. I did not use a tripod as the working distance is almost non-existant. This is the engraving on the inside of an antique wedding ring.

Your a steadier man than I Gunga Din!!!
First if your tripod allows the center column to be revesrsed it and a chair that raises and lowers could be a cheap and easy stand for work that doesn't need the precision perpendicularity of copy work.
Have you tried other than 24mm? Does this stretch the working distance?
Oh, that is quite an engraving job well illustrated, I would love to see the complete ensciption just to see the detail of an artisians work.

Thanks Scott & Jeff.
Scott, I used a reflector and the sun. I placed the ring on a bench under my front porch.
Jeff, thats a pretty creative idea for a copy stand.
Yes - to play around, I tried the 24, 28 & 50. The 50 was great with the 1.4 apperture. It let you focus, then stop down much easier than the others, but no where near the same magnification. The 28 was good when the 24 was too close to get enough of the subect in the frame.
I will try to take another to get more of the enscription. Probably with the 105...

Indeed great shot. And yes, a very steady hand. I can appreciate it very much since my hand now seems that of a maraca player in a samba group.

Brian,

Terrific shot - if you're able to hand hold at that magnification you can safely sell off all your tripods - you'll never need them again! Remind me never to challange you to an arm wrestling contest... super illumination, too!

I tried something like this years ago by reversing my Olympus fifty, but I had to tape the diapragm actuator down - a major pain. At least with Nikon the aperture stays closed to the f-stop when a lens isn't mounted.
