  1. All the photos in his Flicker collection are really good!
    And it’s not hurting that Adafruit’s boards are really nice to look at :)
    How does he get that depth-of-field on those macro shots?!?
    Q: Have you sold any of the BoArduino done on your flow-solder rig? If that one there was hand soldered I think I want one of the old ones as a collector’s item :)

    Fantastic pictures, I think I will bookmark his Flicker :)


  2. Saaweet!

    How to get depth of field with Macro shots.

    Start with a really good interchangeable macro lens on a digital camera body.

    Shoot manual with a tripod and stopped down to F16

    Good lighting, good lenses, absolute stability, long shutter time and small aperature.

    You can also do it with some of the newer non-interchangeable lense cameras, but a lot of it is in the quality of the lense.
