Extreme Closeup Portraiture

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Aaron Ansarov uses a macro lens from three inches away to produce 1 to 1 closeup photographs of a person’s face. The resulting collage of photographs is an amazing view that we seldom see. Aaron’s website 1to1.me contains many examples of his work as well as a zoomable sample that uses over 300 images. The file size is 10.5′ x 15′ at 300DPI (37,800 pixels by 54,000 pixels). You have got to see Aaron’s work to believe it.

Photoshoot at Vizcaya

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Vizcaya was built by agricultural industrialist James Deering in 1916. Vizcaya Museum & Gardens features a Main House, ten acres of formal gardens, and a rockland hammock (native forest).

I used the Panosaurus panoramic head and a Canon T1i to take all the examples in this post. Since I have also become obsessed with infrared, all of the photographs were taken with a Hoya 58mm RM-72 Infrared Filter.

If your camera records the light produced by the remote, you can take the next step – buy an IR filter. The Hoya 58mm RM-72 is a good choice. Be sure to get the correct size for your lens. The link pictured in this post is to a 58mm filter. Expect your exposures to be extremely long because the filter blocks out almost all visible light. Click to continue »
