Tucson 2016 - Cameras and mineral photography day

Last Updated: 11th Feb 2016

By Jolyon & Katya Ralph

This is a LIVE report, keep this page loaded for live updates - new images will appear as they are added.

We recently ran a successful campaign to raise funds for new lenses for our new Canon 5DSr digital camera. Today I have a chance to use this in anger with an opportunity to photograph specimens from the Harvard collection on display here at the University of Arizona.

And here are the three lenses your generous donations allowed us to buy. I will be using at least the rightmost two of these today and showing some of the results here. The MPE-65 is s specualist macro lens and I will show that better next week.

This clever frame (which i bought second hand) allows easy and rapid switching between landscape and portrait without changing where the lens points

In portrait.

Waiting for the keys to get the cabinet open. Gold!

This will look so much better without the perspex

Mt McClure Mine, Australia gold

California gold. Someone with a key walked past a few minutes ago raising hopes but still everything is locked.

Attempting a better photo. So far all photos here are from my phone


Everything is now locked up and my job here is done. Now back to the shows...

I seem to have accidentally ended up in a house full of canadians in various states of alcoholic enhancement. I only came here for a steak and wifi.
