    Wonderful macro Donell. Makes me want to pick up mine:)

  • Thanks Robert! I wish I could play. This is my son’s guitar. I only have a photographic relationship with the guitar.

    I just tried this with my husbands guitar a couple of weeks ago but did not have results like this. This is perfect Donell!

  • Thanks Shelly, I tried this a couple times before too (it’s my son’s guitar), but each time I did it you could see so much dust in the macro shot. So when he left for school this morning I cleaned it up real good and had another go at it!

    The lighting is perfect. for this shot as is the camera angle. I really need to learn camera tilts from you. Love this shot.

  • Thanks Vikram! Step one – tilt your camera. Step two – push the shutter release. Have fun :-)
