90 degree Staurolite crystal cross from Kola, Russia. The piece is about 7cm long at it's longest length (front to back in the first photo and side to side in the second photo). Images cropped (the specimen originally occupied about 2/3 the width of the frame for both photos). Downward tilt for depth of field.

More rock/mineral pictures.

For both photos: Minimal processing in Lightroom 3. Black clipping +2 and brush used to clean up background (exposure set to 0). No cropping (except for that which has already been done by my 7D sensor).

Cavansite and stilbite from an unknown locality. The piece is about 11cm long (top left to bottom right).

The longer axes of the specimens are roughly at a 45 degree angle with the sensor. The sides closest to the top are the farthest from the camera. Tilt utilized for depth of field. Exif data and original size on Flickr.

The first of several. I brought my two favorite lenses with me on holiday, the 24 and my 85L. The 24 managed to steal the most time without breaking a sweat.

Great shots everyone, as always!

For product / close up shots, what is the best practice for adjusting tilt? I'm currently using a combination of: focus on the center (mid-depth) of the object and adjust tilt until the foreground and/or background comes into focus. Is this the correct method? Thanks! :)

And a with/without tilt comparison:
Uvite (dark orange) on Magnesite (white). Unknown locality. Note the edge of the specimen in the lowest part of the frame. No shift.

Without tilt

Thanks, J.D. :) Yes this is my collection. My love for rocks is still there, but I've somewhat stopped collecting for now beause found something else to collect... Canon SLR lenses!

The TS-E 24 II costs about 4/5ths as much as my whole rock collection.

I agree. Both are great Kenny, but I like the second one better.
