I was going to jump into this conversation, but thought better of it - discretion being the better part of valor and all that.... :)

Forget the spine, that's meant to be flexible ... But the way she treats her knees and hip joints makes me acutely queasy (0:27..29, 1:22..33).

Yes...I can probably guess where your and probably 99.9% of the male population "went" watching this piece! lol! Thanks for sparing the few of us women who, um...wished we could do these "positions" but GLAD that this young lady braved the "scrutiny" (of every angle; little left to the imagination!)! lol!

Practically snapped in two "concerned" me! lol! :-/

"But the way she treats her knees and hip joints makes me acutely queasy (0:27..29, 1:22..33)."

Yes! Agreed! I bet she won't be too happy in those areas, someday soon! IMPRESS while you can, YOUNG lady! ;-)

(LOVED your pictures and site, Andreas! BEAUTIFUL macros, flowers, and landscapes! Very cool! May I ask what lens you are using for the macros, please?)

Funny enough, many pocket cameras can do macro quite well.
Otherwise most system cameras have a dedicated macro lens. Not the cheapest, of course, so one can use macro rings to put between the lens and camera, or lenses to put in front (just a high-quality loupe). But with lowered quality, since most lenses are not optimised for very close range.

Thanks for the info.

Wow, thanks a lot for all that praise! That site is actually pretty new, content and organization are still quite rough (you have to start somewhere ...)
The lens has changed occasionally, for the Nikon from Sigma f:2.8/150 mm and Nikon f:2.8/105 mm VR Micro to the Nikon f:2.8/85 mm PC-E Micro currently in use, for the Panasonic GF1 it's the Leica f:2.8/45 mm. You can tell from the "Photo Info" tab available with all pictures on my site which lens was used - while it doesn't list the specific lens the focal length is unambigous.
Feel free to contact me if you have further questions (http://www.zauber-allenthalben.de/contact.html).

You don't mess around, that Leica lens is not cheap!

Well, the reproduction ratio of their lenses is pretty ordinary, but with these extremely small sensors it still results in a very small field of view! (Recommendation: Ricoh CX3)

Look up the cost for that Nikon f:2.8/85 mm PC-E Micro ;-)

Enough said!
A macro lens with perspective control? Didn't know it existed.

For Nikon I have the 60mm macro, very good but rather more reasonably priced.

You're welcome! Well deserved! :-D

Well...it's looking pretty organized to me! :-) Nice that you created the site to share your talent for capturing all these amazing creatures and surroundings. Thank you!

Uh, yes! SILLY me! Hadn't even thought to check for that! Thanks!

Thank you! I appreciate the offer!
