"Tool Box Collections- Screws" by Bradley Shawn  Rabon

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

There is something about working with your hands. In my spare time I enjoy building things, which is something that I have acquired from my step father who is a builder and carpenter. I am starting to photograph the different parts of my tool box. Look forward to more in the near future.

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark ll, 150mm Macro lens, f/2.8, shutter 1/160
Exposure bias -1.00, ISO 400



Primarily a landscape photographer, my enjoyment of taking photos has developed from a young age. Originally from Texas, I now live in England and am surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery. I enjoy outdoor activities such as climbing, hiking, and camping. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and three terrific children. I am a strong Christian and I believe that my love of photography and any talent I posses in capturing images comes from God.

    Love the hard lighting – really brings out the ‘metal’ feel. Just noticed your camera details – that’s some serious camera equipment you have there!

  • Thank you very much Vikram. I am not a huge fan of hard lighting, but with shot I needed to have it to really bring out that detail and texture. I have to admit it works, and I like the result. I also think putting it into B&W helps it. So you’ve noticed my equipment. Lots of people don’t really know much about it. I had been saving for a very long time for and wanted to get the best camera I could. It has been a good friend to me. Of course when you are trying to climb a hill or mountain, it gets rather heavy (ugh).

    Texture is great ! I guess lighting was tricky with such high reflective surface. sharpness is very good also. Great imagery

  • Thank you Antoine. Yes it was a bit, but not as much as I was expecting.
