Mark Helm

I enjoy doing macro images in general and focal stacked macros in particular. My motto is "Get Low and Moving Slow". I really enjoy the challenges of shooting in the field.
and also have a high magnification bench set-up for studio work.

I use both an Olympus E-1 and E-3 with my main macro lens a Sigma 150 mm HSM f/2.8 macro. My general use lens are the 9-18 Olympus F3.5 and the 50-200 Olympus f:2.8. My tripod is a Manfrotto 055XPPro with a Manfrotto 488RC2 ballhead an acra clamp.

I use Adobe PhotoShop CS/5 and Nik plug-ins, mostly Viveza 2 and Color Efex Pro 4.0 and Zerene Stacker to render focal stacked images
