Super Macro

This is a very simple (and messy setup) for me to try several macro lenses together. It consists of a makeshift empty CD container, a pen and a brush attached to the pen via a rubber band. Six macro lenses were stacked together and attached to my E-100RS (+4, +2, +1, +3, +2, +1). The camera is then pointed at the tip of the brush and water is dripped down the brush as the camera takes many pictures (with the pre-capture mode). The one light source is not enough for a fast shutter speed which is needed to freeze the drop in mid-air. All the pictures of drops in mid-air looked like blurry blobs which I deleted from the camera.
