Macro pictures in space with D800 plus 16-35 mm f/4: a very close view to the International Space Station
Close to the shores of the North Sea, the European Space Agency develops the future research projects aboard the International Space Station.
Inside the Esa Columbus module, ISS astronauts run scientific experiments and investigate how (absence of) gravity affects life development.
Together with the 1:1 Columbus module replica , additional ISS modules are present:
All macro pictures shot with hand-held D800 and 16-35 mm f/4. Although the 16-35 mm is a wide-angle, it can be used to shoot close-up details thanks to the minimal focusing distance of 29 cm, with a max. magnification ratio 1:4
What might be the D800 1/8000 for?
It for freezing time! If the light is strong enough for low ISO… if the subject is as thin as a f/2.8 focus plane… then the 1/8000 time option of the D800 let you capture unusual points of view. Like these upside-down single droplets out of a fountain . Click the picture to magnify. Here below the full size picture: find the waterman!
Urgency in a changing world: the ant case.
I don’t have all the time in the world to collect the flower nectar I need …

… to white and dry …
… so dry that it vanishes with the weakest blow! Click to magnify each picture shot with a Nikon 16-35 mm f/4
