Using the new Technology as Art challenge as an inspiration, I shot a little mini-series of techno-macros. Tiny little components that make up all the electronic tools we use today.

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.

    You’re so clever with the titles too!! I really, really like how you’ve captured all the colours in a motherboard – would really haven’t have thought there was too much colour on them.

  • Yea, well… this title came to me pretty quickly. Others don’t… Thank you very much for your comment Vikram :-)

    Well done with the feature. The detail is absolutely fantastic and the DOF is brilliant. A great composition of colour and shape.
