On my desk sits a handcrafted wooden box. Inside I keep small found and favorite things. The crude brass sculpture below is approximate an inch to an inch and a half in size and I found him years ago in a parking lot. He is sitting on a small chunk of Thunder Bay amethyst.
This week we are playing with macro and closeup images. Below are two macro images. I am continually amazed at the difference lighting makes. Macro works best when you keep your camera parallel to the object. The flatter the object the better the results. The three-dimensional pieces below take on an artsy look as the foreground sharpness diffuses into the background.
