I’m getting to know a new DSLR and am seeing what quality the macro can work at. I love this shot, the rust on the blade works nicely as a texture against the hessian bag it is leaning on.

In the 1990’s photography for me was about SLR’s & dark rooms, it was about printing your shots at 3-6am to ‘beat the light’ in you homemade darkroom to get your shots to press. I worked in music, hair and a little news, but love portraiture. Now I use a digital slr, but try to replicate shot control like in the old film days. I now longer make my living out of photography, but prefer to better my life by embracing a passion ;)

    The contrasting and textures are great Marky!

  • thanks Jordan – rust is so nice to work with photographically (as opposed to automotively ;). I didn’t have to play with the contrast filter too much to get this either, the lighting was awesome – (4.30pm winter shadows)

    Your in camera settings were spot on then!

  • I"m really starting to appreciate my dslr – I was never rich enough in the old days to own a good macro lens.
