Rigel Really Up Close

Rigel in macro

I finally got my lens+body caps for my Sony so I can now try out my extension rings. (Rageing about the problems I had with the setup on my camera blog...) Now I can take really close close-ups of my Teenies ^-^

These photos have not been cropped at all, in fact I did no post-processing what-so-ever. So now you can see how grainy Rigel's heart is XD Maybe it is just decaying/crumbling in a cool way? :P

These were just quick test shots, now I'm buzzing with trying to think of good subjects for macro photos!


  1. This is fantastic!!! The photos are very nice and I can see your work so close!!! *_*
    I like his little heart, I always thought it was painted with acrylics :o

    1. Nah, I don't really use any acrylics in my face-ups XD A lot of people think so though... But no, all the lashes, hairs and these markings are done with watercolour pencils. Rigel's is a bit shoddy, but it only shows in these close-ups. For example Spica's Teenie-Ren who has those large markings on his cheeks, those I went over carefully, so that they look quite cripy even when looking right closely. :)

      BTW, for these photos I used 16mm extension tube. The packet came with 16mm and 10mm, but the 10mm seems to be a miscast, since it is very hard to snap onto my camera (I fear it might break my camera if I try to force it). Otherwise I could even stack the two together to make a 26mm extension :)

    2. Oh I see!!! I feel scammed!! (nah jk XD).I can't make nice lines with pencils, I envy you :O!! ~_~

      Extension tubes are great for macros. I have one attached to an old kit lens from an analog camera, but it only focus so close, I don't find much use of it with dolls. I took this shot with it though:
