Somebody lent me their 1.5 carat diamond ring to photograph. It's actually not that easy. This is the absolute minimum working distance of the Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 Micro. Working that close to the subject depth of field, or lack of it, becomes a real issue. Any aperture wider than f/51 steals too much of the image away in blur. I could have gone up to f/57 but all 3 of my flashes were already on full power and I needed the light. This seemed like the best compromise between exposure and depth of field.

Getting the light to reflect off surfaces on both the left and the right side of the stone was also a bit tricky, with lots of careful positioning and fractions of millimeters making the difference. The diamond has the frustrating ability to absorb all light that goes into it, reflecting none (or at least not into my lens). In my first attempts the diamond appeared black. I wanted to get better quality images of the stone than this but I was a bit overwhelmed by just how tricky it is working this small. Next time I will try to suspend the ring, with fishing line or something, to get some lateral shots of the stone.

Three light setup:

Metz 45 CL-4 shot into 60" white umbrella, on full power slightly above and to camera left, triggered via PC cord.

SB900 shot into 45" white umbrella on full power slightly above and to camera right, triggered optically.

Small unbranded speedlight from Jessops on full power, diffused by a sheet of muslin, from infront of subject and slightly above and to camera right, popped manually.

I have been wanting a macro lens as of late but im a little short on funds. Donate now to my paypal please! C_harles@yahoo.com :)
So anyways, while browsing the web looking at macro stuff I came across a blog on reverse lens marco. Here is one of my first shots! It works! But the DOF is crazy small. Still something fun to try!
