    Big fran of the thread. I hope it's not rude for me to presume that you will take requests, but in the off-chance you have a sample of this material and a little free time, I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. Most, if not all, of your subjects are natural fabrics and materials. I have several articles of clothing made with materials produced by the Swiss firm Schoeller Textiles AG. They specialize in high-performance fabrics predominantly used in skiing and hiking jackets. I have an ArcTeryx softshell that has downright perplexing attributes, such that it seems to defy basic laws of thermodynamics. Anyways, I've always wondered what it looks like when you 'move closer'. Here's a link to the firm's website listing most of the brands that use their materials. You can also navigate to learn more about the textiles themselves. If you either own such an article, or happen to have access to one, I would be very interested in getting to see it 'up close'. Many thanks. http://www.schoeller-textiles.com/en/where-to-buy.html

    Thanks, Matt. I don't think I have (or have access to) something like that. If I come across something, I'll be happy to take pictures of it.

    With excellent eyes.

    Yes.

    I am not sure if it was asked, or mentioned, but what lens do you use for your macro shots?

    what body do you use also?

    (not to turn this into a photography thread, you can PM me if you'd rather)

    thanks.


    ps. SWEETTT photos, i'm going to break out my macro & some clothing.
