My name is Can Tunçer. I’m a photographer living in Turkey, and I have been shooting macro photographs for about 7 years now. As someone who likes to photograph the tiny details of nature, I recently chose the peacock feather as a subject and started a special project on it.
The peacock feather has a beauty that is worth examining closely. The feathers, which are notable for their color and metallic structure, are among the many often unseen beauties of nature.
I used three microscope lenses for shooting these macro shots: a Mitutoyo M Plan Apo 5x (5x magnification), Nikon CF Plan 10x 0.30 WD 16.5 (10x magnification), and Lomo 3.7x (3.7x magnification).
All the photos in this project were of a single feather.
I took a total of 1,500 photos for my “peacock project,” and each photo was created with a “focus stacking” technique. Due to the time requirements of my full time job, the project took 2 week to complete.
