For this week Macro Monday’s theme “Motion Blur” I used a miniature globe with minimal lights on set the aperture to f/15 and had the shutter open for 8 seconds. Held the base of the globe in place, and then continued to spin the globe for the full duration of the shutter being open.

Miniture old world zodiac globe made in Italy spinning, with the words Zona Fredda Settent (Cold North Area or Cold Seventh Zone).
Tried to capture three themes into one photo Macro, Motion Blur and Bokeh.

Iceberg Ahead

This photo of ‘Iceberg Ahead’ is a macro photo of a crushed ice block.
To get this photo I placed a glass jar upside down on a table in the sun to heat up. Had a background of black mesh to enhance the colours from the ice. I then placed a few drops of blue food dye onto the jar before adding the crushed ice. Whilst the ice began to melt, the camera was set up on a tripod to make sure manual focus was set. The melting ice combined with the dye created the base of the photo or the sea. The remaining ice creates the icebergs floating on the sea.
