Orange Splatter by Marguerite Foxon

Photographic Prints


While out walking yesterday with a friend, I spotted this dumpster behind an office building being renovated. Thought it had promise! Nikon D90 Nikon Macro 60mm Tripod at about 5". BEST VIEWED LARGE

I love macro abstract work of rejected and neglected items in our society, especially rusty old dumpsters (skips) around the back of buildings, battered boats up on dry dock, rotting wood, bark of trees, and so on. Im fascinated by the color and texture that appears with a macro lens. I do almost no post-processing after taking the shot.

    Yeah that sounds familiar – I take loads of shots and hope to get a good couple – back when i started I tried to get a perfect shot everytime but that just doesn’t happen.

  • Well I do try for a perfect shot every time but I live with a high throw out rate!!
