A Shot A Day – 2016 (01/23/2016)
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.
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.
