As I mentioned, the presidents brought in a lot of possible photography subjects. Some of them were what you'd expect for macro photography: flowers, fruit, shells, and such. Some were more unusual: slinkies, marbles, small pebbles, and other random bits and pieces they thought might make good macro subjects. But my absolute favorite thing to photograph there . . . was this:
|All together now: STEAMPUNK!|
|I have a less eerie-looking version of this as well, but I think this one is a bit cooler.|
Awesome as steampunkery is, though, I didn't spend the entire time taking pictures of it. Another of my favorite items was a nautilus shell, which was split into three cross-sections, and which I took several pictures of.
And a bonus alien nautilus (otherwise known as what happens when I play around with the presets on the curves layer):
|Yes, I do have an affinity for the gritty, weathered look. How did you ever guess?|
|I accidentally put the clock face in this one upside-down. Oopsie.|
And we'll finish off with one last bit of more elegant steampunk:
What do you think of my macro photography? Which image is your favorite? Is there anything you think I could've done better on any of these? Please tell me in the comments!
Thanks for reading!
