About the pictures

Basic information regarding the original image on the site is provided at the bottom of each picture. "Slide" refers to a scanned color slide. In case of digital pictures data on the original, unaltered size of the image (width x height) and its format (jpg only or jpg+raw) are included, as editors might find this information useful. Other technical details on pictures can be found in the exif-extension of sample images.

Digital pictures were taken by Konica-Minolta Dynax 7D, by Sony A700, or by Sony A65 cameras, usually using the great Minolta 2.8/50mm or 2.8/100mm macro lenses, or the really extraordonary Sony 2.8(T 4.5)/135mm STF lens.

Other, more or less regularly used parts of my equipment include Minolta 2.8/200mm, Tamron 17-50mm, and Sony 3.5-4.5/16-80mm lenses, Minolta 3600 HS(D) and 5600 HS(D) flashes, Bounce Reflector V Set, Close-up Diffuser.
