Start with color……

10 years, 4 months ago 6

Thought I would start your week off with a little color!  Sherelene and I took the grandchildren, (Elijhah and Abigail), out on Friday to pickup some toys for the Christmas toy drive at church.  Anytime I go in a crafts store, I am immediately attracted to anything that looks like it would make a great close-up shot and these Laces were just the ticket.


The formula;  I laid the laces down on a pice of dark grey construction paper, and lit them with a LED panel light from the 45 degree angle to the left, to cast shadow and show texture.  I used the Fuji X-E1 with the incredible 60mm Micro lens to make the shot.  Tripod mounted=, of course.  F11 @ 1/2 second at ISO 800.  It is important to get the camera back parallel to the subject to get maximum sharpness corner to corner, on flat subjects.


Next time you go to Target or Walmart walk through the craft section and see what delights you may find!!


Be Blessed,


the pilgrim

    Wow! Those colors really pop off the page (screen?) Bill, you continue to challenge all of my pre-concieved notions about subject matter and now about equipment. Thanks for keeping an old fart fresh!
