Film production company Macro Room has achieved many applaudable feats over the years, including beautiful shots of cutting things in half, or ink in motion. Their work is all on their YouTube– it’s worth checking out. With “Shooting Macro”, a minimal amount of CGI is actually used. It’s all done with the Laowa 24mm f/14 Probe by Venus Optics, which is currently still on Kickstarter.

The lens is skinny and about a foot long, enabling photographers to probe it into bottles as seen above. A ring-style LED on the tip of the lens provide light if needed, such as the book shot in the video. Macro Room painstakingly shot frame by frame, pushing the camera in for the bullet effect, and then used a little bit of editing magic to string it all together.

It all makes for a fascinating video, that opens up an even larger world of possibilities.
