Using the new Technology as Art challenge as an inspiration, I shot a little mini-series of techno-macros.

They have all been taken with my Sony a350 and Sigma 105mm macro (mostly at its widest), using natural diffused daylight.

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.
