After taking some macro shots with the Fuji X100, I got tempted to shoot some “serious” macro images, employing my heavy artillery, the Nikon D800E with the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro lens.

I used the Nikon SB-800 flash so that I could shoot at base ISO using small apertures, to gain some more inches of depth of field. Although it would be wise to use a tripod for more accuracy, the system worked quite well handheld.

The 90mm focal length combined with the 36 megapixels resolution, allowed me to crop the images and still have like plenty of information for prints. I consider the 36mp sensor I great asset for these kind of photos. At base ISO, the details are really stunning.

Enjoy the rest of the images.
