Thomas Sheehan says shooting minute animals with simple Macro setups is the closes an average person can get to exploring a new planet!

I promise you will be fascinated. First with the 120mm Fuji image stabilized lens on the lightweight GFX MF camera and then using much simpler modest setups.


One great example is an early Pentax with a 50mm standard lens reversed! How simple could that be!


He shows us lighting with a diffuser and the built in pop up flash!

You will be impressed and inspired!

Try this marvelous general and easy introduction video first and then the Fuji GFX review here!

Tell me it was worth the diversion!

Because of the lockdown, there is so much more time for small flowers, cracks in the bark of trees with insects and a look at all the things we don’t notice in our “civilized” lives!

Macro is the tool for looking at these smaller object we ignore.

Stacking focus becomes a great advantage. Even just 3 pics can work wonders on a flower of fly!
