Finally discovering one of the k-3's many cool features in part because I just got a FA31 and don't have any filters. So this is with the multiple-exposure interval mode.

That is a lovely shot, haunting. For some reason it kept me looking. Very nice.

Wow! Impressive equipment makes impressive macros. I can't quite match that list but I work with what I have.

Right, everyone here knows it's the equipment that makes the shot.

Seriously though, all of that equipment cost me probably just a tad more than the average retail of a single new copy of the D-FA 100mm WR lens. Not that I'd mind having one of those - the Vivitar Series 1 is a heavy beast! - but I simply enjoy trying different combos for greater than lifesize shooting...

Excellent work there! What did you use to project those patterns?

Lightning is also excellent!

hi RAART, thank you. I used a slide projector with slides drawn and a digital projector for lights directed to the face.

greetings!
