Day 349 (14 Dec 2012) Playing around

I thought it would be fun to try and play around with some lights, crinkled aluminum foil and tinsel.  I used my 50/1.8 and just messed around.  I think some of these would make good powerpoint or card backgrounds.  It was fun just to mess around for a bit!  I posted a lot more photos than usual; they were all so different I couldn’t just pick one or two.

Can you guess how I did the last one?

Day 66 (6 March 2012) Hunger

Today I wanted to experiment with my close-up lenses some more.  And I wanted to eat pie.  So, why not do both?  I also tried shooting the coffee grounds still in the coffee maker and the aluminium foil that was covering the pie.  Sad thing is that writing about it makes me want to get another piece!  I think  you’ll want one, too!
