African Violet

New to the forum. Thought you might like somewhat unique macro setup. Fuji 50r piggy back on Linhof 4x5 with Schneider 110xl super summary lens. I need to add focus stacking but this system goes beyond 1:1.

Re: African Violet

It looks really good.  I am a fan of hairy plants.

Is the 4X5 the press camera or the view camera?  I would like to see how you put them together.

Re: African Violet

Thank you. I use an old view camera I used for years. It looks rough because I stripped off non-essentials. It has a fotodiox  plate to attach the Fuji 50r medium format camera. The 110xl lens is especially suited for macro in this arrangement. It is not a macro lens. Very sharp.  Below is a picture of the rig and another macro. I experimented with dish soap bubbles. Cheers.

Re: African Violet

I like your pic and compositional thought of the " hand holding" the flower cup - it works great - thunbs up.

Roger, thank you. I was surprised by the outcome to say the least. Happy shooting.
