Springtime - A Journey Into Macro Space
Gunther Machu thought about showing the beauty of nature in terms of the landscapes and the insects – to take a journey in to macro space.
He started initially to just reverse mount his 50mm f1.4 lens (taping it to the adapter on his Lumix GH1), but then for quality reasons he bought a used 50mm f3.5 FD macro lens with a 25mm extender.
Almost everything was filmed in his garden, apart from the first sequence which was on a small hill very close to his house – he realized that the flowers there became extremely rare and are under severe protection!
It makes for a fascinating glimpse in to a world we only rarely consider – that which is right underneath our noses. Enjoy!
