I belong to a Meetup group here in Ohio that is a great bunch of photographers with all levels of skill and all kinds of equipment. We meet each month with a different topic to discuss and possibly shoot. This last weekend the topic was macro photography. You know THAT caught my eye. There were several stations with various props and ways to do it. There were bellows, magnifying rings, soft boxes, extension tubes and ring lights; so tempted to get one of those!
We experimented with water drop photos, toys, mirrors, flowers, bugs (not living ones) and this thing here. Not quite sure what you call it but it was so colorful that I gravitated right to it.
I was trying to figure out what it is too. It hypnotized me for a while.
I’m going to have to ask it’s owner what it is. Some bit of glass art I think.
Sounds like a fun group…
They get a bit equipment happy sometimes but they are a great group.
Wow! Beautiful photo!
Beautiful, Teri. No wonder you were gravitated to it.
It was calling to me 🙂
Wow…a very dynamic group, Teri. It sounds like a great exercise. Love the image and object Cheers
Thanks. They are a great group of folks to learn and goof around with.
Gorgeous shot! Love all the beautiful colors!
Thanks. I even ignored the flowers for this little object.
Very interesting! This is quite a beautiful piece of art. In its own right but now also after you photographed it. Stunning!
Wow… that glass ball is crazy up close. It looked like a bunch of baby snake heads to me at first! I have hosted a macro shoot like what you are describing. I would be interested to know what other props you used. Very cool pics!
