The new website is live! Three months in the making, 22 redesigned pages, 369 images, and 14 videos. I am truly lucky to work in an industry I love, meeting interesting people, seeing incredible places, and witnessing brilliant work in progress. Many thanks to all the amazing clients I have worked with over the years for trusting me to help tell their stories. And of course none of this would be possible without the fantastic group of assistants, producers, stylists, and various other crew on my call roster that have helped make these projects succeed. This June will mark 14 years in business for MGV Photography and nearly 17 for me working in the media production industry. So excited to see where it goes next!

.
Another with the Burnside 35mm from #Lensbaby with the same 52mm macro extension tubes as the previous photo, giving it a 2.05x total magnification. The “defocused starfield” bokeh was made by poking holes in construction paper with a thumbtack, then blasting some light through. Rigging for depth with putty and legos. Some of it is visible in the defocused areas, but I liked the added depth, so don’t troll me, internet…. Funky ghosting effect on the edges of the star, not sure of the technical term, but I’m digging it. Anybody know what to call it? Is this also a result of the #petzval design?

.
Similar subject, but different lens, angle, and magnification than the previous photos in this series. This is shot with the Burnside 35mm from #Lensbaby. It has a normal magnification of 0.56x, and minimum focus distance of 6", but I’m adding 52mm of macro extension tubes, giving it a 2.05x total magnification. It is also a #petzval lens, so there’s a little bit of the swirly bokeh effect visible in this one, even stopped down to f/5.6 and focus stacked. I didn’t know what to expect with this lens at 61mp, but really happy with how well it does at this resolution.

Swipe for crop and detail. Essentially the same lighting setup as seen in the BTS shot on my previous salt post, using two small b-boards to flag and shape a single key light into a tiny #RayOfLight, and then the black side of a third b-board as #NegativeFill to soak up the spill off. This is shot at the same 1x magnification with the Sony 90mm, and a 26mm #MacroExtentionTube, so 1.3x magnification in the total. I merged 10 images in #ZereneStacker to add a little more depth of focus.

Swipe for detail, peppercorns look like tiny asteroids. Essentially the same lighting setup as seen in the BTS shot on my previous salt post , using two small b-boards to flag and shape a single key light into a tiny #RayOfLight, and then the black side of a third b-board as #NegativeFill to soak up the spill off. This is shot at the same 1x magnification with the Sony 90mm, and a 26mm #MacroExtentionTube, so 1.3x magnification in the total. I merged 10 images to #FocusStack just enough to create depth of focus for the hero pepper corn.

#MacroInQuarantine, Number003, Natural Idea. Seems Mother Nature is trying to tell us something these days about the world we’ve built for ourselves. Perhaps we should listen, and have better ideas?
.
My previous post has a #BTS shot of my little studio set. This one’s basically the same gear, with a slightly different configuration. Using a combo of glycerin, water, and patience to make just the right #WaterDrop. Using #CaptureOne for tethered capture, @Lightroom for development, and then into @Photoshop for compositing and fine retouching. Finally updated to #Photoshop2020 (having no client deadlines and all) and gave some of the new AI selection tools a whirl. Sort of useful, but as with every other recent Photoshop “innovation” they fall short of professional quality. So it was back to the PenTool for the selection and masking on this composite.
.
Here’s the gear list again if you’re keeping score at home:
.
Camera & Lens: Insane levels of detail brought to you by the Sony a7rIV, Sony 90mm Macro OSS, with two #Neewer macro extension tubes to bring the 1:1 ratio even higher
.
Camera Accessories: Small vibrations make big movements. Using a #VelloGear Shutter Boss II, @manfrottoimaginemore tripod, @pergear ball head to help hold it all down.
.
Tethering & Monitor: Focusing being done at a near microscopic level,I’m using an @atomos.global #NinjaV monitor, @Apple #MacBookPro running @captureonepro for Sony, @tethertools USB-C cable, and a custom laptop table made with help from @TapPlastics, all to help me get that slice of focus just so.
.
Lighting: Key light is a little battery powered LED from from @coreswx, rim light is a section of my #Spekular light from @spiffygear, fill is being bounced from a little LED from Neewer
.
Grip: A collection of C-Stands, Magic Arms, light stands, platypuses, etc, from @matthewsgrip, @kupogrip, and @profoto.
.
Stage Rigging: Macro focusing being what it is, I rigged up a piece of foam core to my @official_konova video slider, so I can move the stage and the subject rather than the camera to achieve focus. It’s motorized, so I can still shift focus without stepping out from behind the camera. Love finding unintended @ Portland, Oregon

Some of it is visible in the defocused areas, but I liked the added depth, so don’t troll me, internet…. Funky ghosting effect on the edges of the star, not sure of the technical term, but I’m digging it. Anybody know what to call it? Is this also a result of the #petzval design? . #alien #StarAnise #macrospices #spice #spicerack #food #macrofood #dramaticlight #tediousphotography #Quarantine #QuarantinedPhotographer #MakingTheMostOfIt #MacroPhotography #studio #macro #Burnside35 #MacroExtentionTube #bokehfordays #bokehlicious #SonyA7rIV #SonyAlpha #lensbabyathome #lensbabyburnside35 @seeinanewway @lensbabyusa @SonyAlpha #SonyPro @sonyprousa .

#MacroInQuarantine, Number019, “Poppyseed Mountain” Swipe for detailed view, swipe again for BTS showing setup, scale, and challenging focus distance. . Similar subject, but different lens, angle, and magnification than the previous photos in this series. This is shot with the Burnside 35mm from #Lensbaby. It has a normal magnification of 0.56x, and minimum focus distance of 6", but I’m adding 52mm of macro extension tubes, giving it a 2.05x total magnification. It is also a #petzval lens, so there’s a little bit of the swirly bokeh effect visible in this one, even stopped down to f/5.6 and focus stacked. I didn’t know what to expect with this lens at 61mp, but really happy with how well it does at this resolution. #poppyseed #spices #spice #seasoning #cooking #food #macrofood #focusstack #2x #dramaticlight #tediousphotography #Quarantine #QuarantinedPhotographer #MakingTheMostOfIt #MacroPhotography #ZereneStacker #studio #macro #Burnside35 #MacroExtentionTube #SonyA7rIV #SonyAlpha #lensbabyathome #lensbabyburnside35 @seeinanewway @lensbabyusa @SonyAlpha #SonyPro @sonyprousa .
