Close-up Photography with a Loupe
|
A Loupe
A loupe is a small, hand-held magnifier and it can be a handy little tool to help you get some great super close-up images. Here are a few ideas.
|
Deer Fern   Reproductive frond of the Deer Fern
Our first subject is the frond of a striking Deer Fern, Blechnum spicant. This is the typical frond present for most in the year.
In the autumn, you will come across the reproductive frond.
|    
Underside of Deer Fern
This is the underside of the reproductive frond showing the spores.
Using the loupe, you can get extra close to those spores.
|
Loupe on the fern   Camera on the loupe
Place the loupe on the specimen.
Carefully position the camera over the loupe and focus.
|    
Close-up image
This is the result. You'll notice some distracting black corners due to the fact that you are taking an oblong image through a round object.
|
Cropped close-up image
Crop off those annoying dark corners and you'll end up with a fascinating photograph of the tiny spores.

Try experimenting with other subjects like mosses, lichens and liverworts.
You'll discover a whole new miniature world of nature.
