What is it?
As I have mentioned, my current photographic passion is macro and close-up photography. Like many of us, I began my photographic journey with a small point-and-shoot camera which didn’t allow me any direct control over depth-of-field. After upgrading to the Canon G11, I am now able to shoot in Aperture Priority mode and have an f/stop range of 2.8 to 8.0 – not what a DSLR can offer but amazing nonetheless compared to what I previously had available to me.
This capability has opened up a new world for me. I admit that I have likely moved over into obsession since 80-90% of what I shoot falls into this category. I know I need to explore other types of images. I do enjoy architecture as a subject but on a daily basis the “small” subjects are more readily available. And they seem to speak to me. Searching for the next small thing slows me down, keeps me in the present moment.
The image above was taken as part of an assignment for my Advanced Digital Photography class. One of those happy accidents, I simply love the abstract nature of this image. A common household item, it takes on a completely different character when viewed from this perspective.
Can you guess what it is?
