    Default Molecular documentation

    What happens when you shoot something that is really really small?

    Pollen grains from Spider Lily


    Crushed himalayan rock salt


    Tiny crystals in an agate geode

    3 should be quartz. I lit an artificially dyed (hence the blue) agate geode from the underside. Actual size of the whole "cave" (of which a small portion was shot) is roughly that of an average person's thumbnail.

    Olympus Zuiko (the old OM) 20mm f2. Used extension tubes to work with the pollen grains in pic 1.

    Actually, they were shot with the Olympus E510, set on "natural" color setting. iso 100. I guess the colors could also be a product of the lens, which is the old manual stuff.
