[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Today I would like to introduce the family of aphides (Aphidoidea) to you. :)

The photograph came into existence as the result of my great bore. There was a heat terribly therefore even I didn't think about leaving to the meadow. Resigned I went out on the balcony in quest some Salticus scenicus. Admittedly I didn't find the spider but I noticed that on plants I had aphides. Quickly I got hold of a camera and there is a photograph here. ;)

The technical side:

I must say, that to make this photograph it was quite with difficulty. I used Pancolar 50mm lens turned away and 2 sets of an extension rings. I made the photograph with technique stack photo. It came into existence from folding 3 photographs. I decided to use f/22 apertures. It depended for me on like of the greatest depth of focus. I had to very quickly make 3 photographs of aphides, in addition insects could not twitch since after folding 3 photographs the integrity wouldn't be sharp. As can be seen managed to receive a sharply focused photograph just enough. ;)

A light was a next problem - and rather it is missing. Applying lens turned away already by the f/8-11 aperture we have very dark in the peephole of a camera. One can't see hardly nothing, and it is necessary to adjust the sharpness manually. I had to use the small flashlight. I directed the lighting to aphides, and hence I brightened the image in the peephole of a camera (of course I used an also outside flashgun).

The last matter - in the information about the photograph I always emphasize that I am not using the tripod. That's true... but only in part. :) I am using none traditional tripod neither unipod. However the support of apparatus must be. Because it is impossible (at least by my shaking hands:)) carrying series of photographs out about the almost identical frame. What I am using as tripod? It is most often photographic rucksack on which I am putting a camera.;)

That's all. :)
