High-Magnification Macro Photography with the 24mm F1.4 Art

© 2016 Robert OToole

High Magnification Macro Photography reaches into a fascinating world of details that are normally hidden to the naked eye. The simplest and most cost effective way to get reach high magnification is to reverse mount a wide angle lens. When used in reverse the 24mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art lens gives me sharp detailed images at 5X or five times life-size. Check out some of my favorite images below.

Sigma 150-600 Sports lens at 410mm and Nikon D810, 1/1250s, f/18, ISO 1000, EV + .3, Manual mode with Auto-ISO, UniqBall UBH 45 head and Jobu Algonquin Carbon Tripod.

Imagine one of finest places in the world for photography, filled with a vast system of mountains, lakes, and hundreds of miles of wild and untamed rivers and streams. A home for brown bear, eagles, fox, and wolves. Thankfully Katmai is visited by only a small number of people each year.
