The beauty with the awful sound

The beauty with the awful sound

I asked my dentist if I could have some old drills and I got lucky. And this is the beauty with the awful sound. Goosepimps anybody?

I also changed the theme for my website to a more graphic one. The first page will look different by the time I have more entries, due to the featured images I did not use until now.

Drilling through light

It is Monday, autumn and I shoot a macro again. Today’s topic in macro monday is metal – so I chose a drill. And I drilled for light because this was the strangest thing ever I had to light. Whatever you do, you have to live with the highlights, the flares and the unwanted reflections.

One of the days when I know why I love and hate photography.

Lined paper

I tried to shoot another macro but wanted to use a different light. A bunch of paper was used – you can see the edges and lines of the paper.
A white LED was the light source from the left and a laser pointer was used from the top and aimed between the paper.
In post processing I used the tonal contrast filter from Nik Color Efex. This enhanced the edges and enhanced the abstract effect of the picture.
I can imagine this quite good on a wall.

It is not what you see…
