I’m enjoying trying out some new skills with Thecandidclassroom on instagram.  This week is black-and-white, with the challenge to start on floral macro work.  I don’t think I’ve ever tried flowers in black and white.  Here is my Round One.  I always appreciate some CC!

    Wow, Tam! That is amazing clarity. I love that the fork has some scratches–so cool to see the tiniest details. Nice!ReplyCancel

    Wow, I would never think to macro a fork, but I really like it! I love how you can see the little scrapes on it.ReplyCancel

My instructor for this class said she took 400 shots to get five that she loved.  Being slightly less picky, I did almost as well!  Progress, folks.  This was a really fun, if tough, assignment.   Catching water droplets is harder than it looks!

    Tam, these are amazing! I love the little splash puddles! So cool! And the droplets of water. How did you stage this?ReplyCancel

    This one is taken in a shallow dish of water with colored paper behind it. A bag of water is hung above and drips into the dish. You have to use a flash to catch the drops, and I might do this again when I have an off-camera flash. I think it will give less glare. But it was fun. Ace rigged me an amazing bag hanging system with a chair, a 2×4 scrap, and LOTS of duct tape! 🙂ReplyCancel

More macro homework.  Wow!  This one was so much harder than it looked!  I hope there are a few more from the 300 shots that work out.  I’ll get them up on Monday.  For now, this is what I saw.
