We have all seen those illustrations of how a lens is constructed, how the glass elements are fitted together. We have all seen x-ray images of our bones and teeth. One photographers project merges these two things to make for a really unique look at the lenses we use every day.
Guy Viner is a photographer that uses his day job as a x-ray technician to photograph SLR lenses. When looking at the images below you will likely find them pretty familiar, they resemble those lens layout illustrations that we see whenever a new lens is released.
The difference here is that these are X-ray images, and you can see not only the glass elements but also the screws and other pieces to the puzzle. It is a really unique look at these lenses and really helps you appreciate what is going on inside of them. Its a lot more complicated than many think. see for yourself…
Can you name any of the lenses pictured? Leave a comment below!
