From a different perspective.

One of the neat things about working in Macro, is that it gives you a totally different perspective of commonly seen objects. In this photo the subject is a group of ordinary drywall screws. Close up, it provides an interesting composition of lines, shapes, and shadows. Once again it is easy to see the shallow depth of field that one must work with when shooting macro. I suppose you could argue that the point of focus should have been on the object closest to the foreground. I chose to focus in the mid-ground which in my opinion gives the image much more interest and depth.

This image was shot with a Canon 80D camera using a Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens and a 21mm extension tube. The lighting was natural and the settings were: iso100 f/16 and a 4sec exposure time. Post processing was done in Adobe LR and Photoshop 2017 CC.
