Today’s The Daily Shoot’s assignment is: “Make a photograph that features a very distinct curved line or surface today.”
Today, while shooting this, I had a few reminder “must do’s” if shooting macro’s. First, remember to clean your subject and background. My iPhone looked clean but the macro brought out all the dirt! Thankfully Amy’s cell is newer and, cleaner! Second, wear a black shirt if you plan on using a Speedlite or continuous lighting (as I used). I originally had an off yellow shirt and I could SO see it in the photo! Needless to say, I changed into a black shirt! Hahaa, oh well, enjoy!
Excellent shot! perfect for the assignment.
and about that black shirt, I found that out with shooting through windows 🙂 Unfortunately, the first time I was in an aircraft, no chance of changing at that point 🙂
Hi Mike, it’s funny how/where we learn things isn’t it? I always try to wear black (or very dark blues…but mostly black) when I shoot now. Thanx for sharing your wear black story! 😀
Very nice and techy. I like the contrast with the white earphones.
Thank you Heather. Going into this shot, I figured just the iPhone would be too…bare. I think the ear buds add a nice touch! 😀
Great shot David! Simple yet beautiful. I know… sometimes I don’t see the dirt or other distracting parts until it’s on the computer screen. Thankgoodness for Photoshop. However, I do try to make it a habit to get it right instead of relying on PS. Thanks for the tip about the black shirt. Never would have thought about it affecting the shot.
It’s amazing what reflections pick up, for that matter, what the light picks up! Even though in the photos you couldn’t tell it was “me”, I could see the yellow throughout the rim of the phone. I do agree with you regarding PS which is why I swapped out my phone for Amy’s. 😀
This is very clean and minimal. I love it.
I know exactly what you mean about the macro bringing out the dirt. Happens to me all the time. I had attempted to shoot my cheese grater for yesterday’s assignment, and I noticed through the macro lens that it had water spots from its last cleaning. (LOL) I hadn’t even noticed!
Thanx Cheryl. It’s amazing what a macro lens will pick up! Funny thing about your cheese grater story…I did the exact same thing about two weeks ago! 😀
How beautiful! I also like my iphone.
Thank you cocomino!
Great shot David, I love the earbuds on top. Dang those things look big through a 100mm…
Yea, for my big ears…NOT! 😛 Thanx for the comment and stopping by Jim.
Very cool, I like this a lot.
Thank you JP.
