Mother of Pearl Buckle
This is an old shell buckle captured with the Canon MP-E 65mm 1-5x macro lens that I rented a few weeks ago. To find out more about the lens look at the first of these posts.
These are shot at about 1:1 and 5:1 magnification. The bottom image looks a bit like a close up of an insect’s eyes.
Canon 5Dii, Canon MP-E 65mm 1-5x Macro Lens, ISO100, f-8, 1/60th (top) and 1/250th (bottom)
EDIT: Apologies to my subscribers for publishing this accidentally last night which means you all got a notification with a broken link because I was too tired to just leave it where it could be found and prepare another post for this morning. I am glad that you found your way here anyway.
