A Shot A Day – 2016 (01/23/2016)

by | Jan 23, 2016 | A Shot A Day 2016 |

“Twisted”

I can wander around a location multiple times and on each pass find something new to shoot. I probably walked by the wall display of concrete drill bits 5 times before I decided to free this one of its packaging and work up a shot of it.

A Shot A Day - 2016(B) (023A of 365)-(23-01)

A Shot A Day – 2016(B) (023A of 365)-(23-01)

Sony Alpha A7RII, Sony FE 90 f/2.8 Macro G OSS

ISO 100 – 1/125 @ f/3.2 – 90mm

Nissan Di700a Flash

This shot was all about three things…

Working the angle of the spirals in the bit and the bit itself into the composition I wanted.

Making sure that the highlights and specular surfaces on the bit itself didn’t blow out when I added the flash in.

Making sure that I lost the background texture with a very shallow depth of field.
