This Macro Monday’s theme “Tie”.
Saw my daughter playing with these coloured rubber bands. She was getting them all tangled up and leaving them everywhere. So when she had finished, I was cleaning them up and found two rubber bands stuck together. I decided to tie two more together so that there was one of each colour and the above photo is what I came up with.
Exposure 13 and Aperture f/25.0

This Macro Monday’s theme “Tie”.
To create this photo I used two white tied elastic cufflinks, dipped each end in food dye (Red, Green and Blue). Rinsed off the excess food dye to lighten the colours then tied them by twisting the two cuff links together to hold them in position. They were then placed on a freshly wiped down black cook top to create pattern and reflection. Background was made by the use of a bracelet to make the bokeh effect.
Exposure 2.5 and Aperture f/9.0

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.

Golf Glass

Golf Glass, a photo by Richard Le Sauvage on Flickr.

This photo of ‘Golf Glass’ is a macro photo of a golf ball in a small plastic cup.
To get this photo I placed a plastic cup on a table and filled with water. Had a background of white table slats to enhance the reflection of light and colours from the water. I then placed a drop of blue food dye into the cup and mixed the water to achieve a light blue colour. Then placed the golf ball into the water and topped the water up so the glass was full. This creates a slight dome caused by the water’s surface tension which refracts the light entering the water and shows us a skewed image of the ball on the surface.

This is a photo taken at the park with my daughter playing with sand and her curiosity intrigued me.

As I watched this it was like watching moments of time passing through her hand one grain at a time. So glad I am to capture moments like this to remember how small she once was.
