I have painstakingly collected mint components of every aspect of the Nikon PB-6 Modular Bellows system, and this is the first image I have tried to take with it, dipping my "toe" in the water, so-to-speak.

This tiny crab spider is about 7mm (1/4") wide: she'd fit on your pinky fingernail :)
I used a Nikon D810 + Nikkor AI-S 50mm f/1.2, reversed, on the PB-6 @ an approximate reproduction ratio of 4:1. (It is a 23-image stack.)

It is really not that high-mag, compared to what the full system is capable of, but again I am just dipping my toe in the water.

BTW, this is a pregnant Mecaphesa sp. of Crab Spider, who is missing her right front leg :(

I am thrilled with the results and handling of the PB-6 Bellows, but know that I can do better, as I grow accustomed to it.

Despite the magnification, I did not use any flash at all. Nor was it natural light. I have been working on my studio lighting, as I don't like the look of "flash dots." I have been working with reverse-lenses in-studio and am getting my lighting to where (I think) it looks like a natural-light shot taken outside, no flash. (I use live specimens only, nothing dead.)

Would appreciate any constructive criticism, thanks.

Jack
