Intro by Skip Cohen
Over and over again I've written about the diversity of Panasonic's LUMIX Luminaries. Well, this week Bob Coates jumped into the spotlight stacking macro extension tubes while shooting with a LUMIX GH4. The results are stunning.
Check out more of Bob's images and great advice at his blog, Successful-Photographer.com ... and, you'll find all of the LUMIX Luminaries in the LUMIX Luminary Lounge!

It's not a stutter when I say "Macro Macro". It is the term I use for stacking macro extension tubes on a macro lens. I thought I'd take the macro photography to another place and see what happens.
I used the Leica DG Macro-Elmarit 45mm f2.8 Aspherical mounted on the Lumix GH4 with a set of Vello Extension tubes (10mm + 16mm stacked) to see what would happen. Since I was trying to keep weight down on the trail I used a MeFoto Backpaker Travel Tripod to support the camera.
Here are some examples.
