I'd like shake the persons hand who took those photos and pick his brain on how he was able to set it up. I'd also like to know if there was any photoshopping involved.

My son took this for his photography class at school.

Photoshop? Like what... cropping? Contrast adjustment?

 

The light setup is a gridded flash (which is what causes that distinct pattern) and probably some working distance, so a longer lens ~100mm macro and above. Extension tubes, stop down a lot, give the person a place to put their head so they stay steady. Heck, you could do something like this if you leave the DSLR in your bag and get a Pentax Q10 (or its relatives) since you'll want to have as much DoF as possible.

Cool - I loved my old Minolta XG-M. The SRT-101 is even older - as I recall it is all manual exposure and had a cold flash shoe. Even for me, that's a bit too primitive! redface.gif

I for one am actually completely down to the idea of it being complete manual etysmile.gif It's what I do on my DSLR already anyways. And yes, it is coldshoe, but that doesn't bother me, I have no intentions of using a flash with it anyways.

I forgot to say that your lenses are a group of the classic Minolta Rokkor glass - good show!

Took this in Beijing. You can actually see stars! Not a very common night

Gods, everyone here is so talented with photography. These are taken from my buddies DSLR, and some just a crappy little point and shoot. I hope the setting makes up for the lack of quality.....here is to the great Northern Canadian Wilderness....

Hand held reversed lens or did you have an adapter to reverse it?  Cool shot either way.
