From Macro to Space with the ALPA 12 FPS
A View Behind the Scences

Photographer Andrei Duman always pushes boundaries with regards to what is possible with photography. His shoot concepts are usually complex with incredible attention to detail, all the while staying authentic to his ultimate vision. He loves to work with the ALPA 12 FPS camera in different configurations.  The incredible versatility of this camera allowed Andrei to dive deep into the fascinating macro world of insects and take images as well from space.


To create ExoSkeleton, an extreme macro photography essay, Andrei used the ALPA 12 FPS aspart of the ALPA Focus Stacking Kit FPS/105 float . The ALPA 12 FPS, equipped with the PhaseOne IQ3-100 digital back, made it possible to take incredible detailed stacked-images of insects from all over the world

In direct contrast, Andrei mounted the ALPA12 FPS camera with the IQ4-150 to the 100-inch Hooker telescope at Mount Wilson Observatory, located in Los Angeles, CA . For the first time, it was possible to take photos with a high resolution camera of the moon and planets on one of the world most powerful and historic telescopes.
