A Few of My Favorite Things
This image depicts a lot of the elements that I like to to include in my photographs. I love close-ups. One of my favorite lens is my Macro lens though I did not use it in this shot. I also am attracted to things that glow or have light shining on them or illuminating certain elements of the subject. There needs to be something in the composition or in the subject that makes it distinct and not ordinary to make it unique and eye-catching. And lastly I LOVE a shallow DOF.
So, I used my new Olympus Zuiko 40-150mm F2.8 lens and zoomed in on my sewing machine as I pressed down the foot peddle. I had set the Aperture to f/8 and Speed to 1/13 of a second to catch the motion on the spotlighted needle traveling up and down. All was photographed in a dark room to accentuate the lighting.
Oh yes, Sewing and Photography are a Few of My Favorite Things.
