Tonight’s post is another image that I created for the monthly challenge in the AZ Photographer’s Group. The challenge was to take and post up to three macro shots. Macro isn’t really my thing, but it was a great learning experience trying to balance light, depth of field, and composition, all within a few inches of your face.
This shot is one that I had in my head for several days, and while it didn’t turn out just exactly like I envisioned it, I didn’t think it was too bad. Someday when I have a little more patience, I may try it again to see if I can improve on it:
Shot with a Nikon D700, 50mm lens with 10X filter, F/5.6, 1/80s, ISO 200
Thanks to everyone who commented on yesterday’s post, Thirsty (in Macro). It was a fun shot, and I appreciate all the kind feedback!
