This is the head of a match, photographed using a sigma 55-200 and a reverse mounted 35 mm to that. A milkcontainer, alu-plated on the inside was used as a flash-reflector. Since the 35 was set to f=22 to gain at least some DOF I ´ve got that enourmos vignette. But it ads a nice effect to the pic anyway. Using the zoom-function of the liev-view I was able to focus very easily. Nevetheless, moving objects are out of bounds to be shot. On the matchheadcomplete-picture you can see the complete tableau and some crops of the matchhead-1 pic. As you can see, DOF is similar to nothing. :)

Thanks for the explanation! Kind of freaky ...
