Are you still using the handheld torches for these?


Yes, but they are no longer hand-held - I found some small flexible arms to put them on. All these pictures are stacks - handholding torches would not work in this case.

Thanks, Anand. That is a stack done with Zerene Stacker, as you might have guessed, shot with 2X microscope objective.

Despite the name, this plant has nothing to do with Sweden (it is from South Africa) and is not related to Ivy...

Very good, Alex - I always enjoy the alien loom of these pics. My favourites are 55 for the stark minimalism and the last one, 61, for the crispness and unexpected colour explosion.   The pitcher plant looks good too.


Thank you, Mike. You are not alone in picking the Butter daisy shot as one of the favourites: http://www.olympusbioscapes.com/gallery/year/2014

You can use any camera and lens for this type of photography. The lighting and the filters, on the other hand, need to be chosen carefully. That will also determine the cost.
