Luis Emilio´s presentation

Hello everyone, I´m a biologist and a PhD student, so I like nature and plants. Actually i am doing a reserch about one group of endemic to Mexico and very beautiful plants called Echeveria, the reason why I decided to join at this forum is that I first purchased a Pentax K5 and recently a k3, this forum is the best out there and I learn very useful things about photography from here, so I appreciate that.

My native language is Spanish so please consider this if I make some orthographic errors.

Welcome aboard! For macro photography, Pentax has some great options. The 50mm and 100mm macro lenses are outstanding.
For even more magnification you can investigate reverse mounts for lenses and bellows units.

Of course, this is if you don't have access to a suitable microscope for this work.
