Microworld by Licht~~~~

By Village Mayor • Apr 22nd, 2009 • Category: Art, Latest Post, Photography

Paul first got interested in photography when he was just a little boy. He got his first camera about 50 years ago, and does photography ever since then.

When you look at his photos you can see that the years have ripened him as a photographer and he has mastered macro photography very well.

I would like to present just a tiny bit of his works: microworld. Water drops in these photos are usually around 1mm in diameter.

Waterdrops are optical systems just like fisheye lenses. The background is refracted upside down and mirrored.

You can find his flickr page here.

Some call him ‘The Lord of Macro droplet shots’. What do you think?

The Flag

The flag belongs to a little wooden chopstick used to pickup party snacks. Size is approx 25x15mm only. The red drop carrier is the inner part of a half uncoiled paperclip.

This photo is as it was from the camera – no photoshop works.

Diameter of this drops is approx. between 0,6 mm to 1,0 mm only.

Refractions – How it Works #1

A 300 fps = 300 photos per second video – of a water tap in my kitchen – see what happens!

Refraction-How it Works #2

4 drops refracting the background – a blue dottet paper sheet.

Diameter of one blue dot = 5mm

Diameter of the drops is approx ~ 0,7mm-1,0mm only

I moved the paper – see what happens.
