Apple of her eye by micklyn

Canon 400D, natural light, canon 100mm macro lens

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    I don’t know how you did this but it is brilliant :-)

  • Lol… many tries and plenty frustration, but my willing model, Perrin (13) once again came through for me… the things she puts up with! thanks for your comment!

    Great shot! Reflection is clear as a mirror.

  • Thanks! I tried to focus on the reflection more than on the eye itself ( :

    No idea how you did this – it’s awesome!!

  • Much eye-watering hard work (not for me!) I tried to focus on the apple, but in the end used a patch of ‘eye’ from one of the shots where the apple wasn’t in focus, but the iris was, to increase the focused area of the finished shot… not that you needed to know that ( :

    I have been messing with this kind of shot off and on and have learned to be careful what is in the reflection.. It is great to see one so perfectly captured.

  • Thanks, Aaron! the reflection was the whole point for me in this one. It was so much harder to get right than I expected, though! thank goodness my daughter was such a patient model!!
