With this set I set out to test a new equipment I had built. I wanted to reach the same levels of precision and super high resolution I was achieving previously using a view camera rig to stack and stitch. It seemed to work.
Meanwhile – when testing there is no substitute for ‘doing it for real’. And when it comes to focusing on familiar objects I am always captivated stuff I have around which I want to present in new ways. So I went to town with the subject matter also.
When the majority of ones work is on screen it is easy to forget how laborious it is to construct mechanical things which are glitch free. The new technique has a few limitations, so it won’t replace the other completely. But the pictures offer evidence of the basic technical success – satisfyingly achieved without multiple ‘redesign’ iterations this time round.
