Welcome to

The Tuberous Drosera

The Gallery

Why and how

I love it to take pictures of this beautiful plants, especially to take macro shots. In my opinion the beauty of the tuberous drosera are in the details. Look at the picture in the header. It shows a leaf of Drosera schmutzii.

Usually the leafs of Drosera schmutzii are about 5 mm (2") in size when they are fully grown. Their beauty can hardly be seen by looking at the plant. But in a magnified macro image you can see that this single, small leaf is a true work of art of nature.

I hope that you can experience the beauty of the plants in my pictures just like I do.

The pictures you will see in the gallera were cultivated and photographed by Jean-Pierre, Martin or by me.

Sometimes I am asked what kind of equipment I use. Since 2016 I have a Canon D77 and as a lens I mainly use the really recommended Canon EF-S 60mm 1:2,8 Macro USM lens. The macro shots are taken with the Cognisys Extended Length Macro Rail 200mm, which is operated via the Helicon remote software. I also use several studio lamps and tripod material. I stack the images to get a larger depth of field and the post-processing of the images is done with Adobe Lightroom and with the very recommendable Nik-Software Collection. What "stack" or better "focus stacking" means you can read here.
