Red Circuit Board

Old circuit board lit from behind. Unedited, straight RAW -> JPG. I'm quite happy with this one.


See setup shot here.


Strobist: Vivitar 285hv on other side of circuit board facing camera at 1/16 power (I think.) Rosco red gel (#2001).


Submitted to the Cream of the Crop pool as most interesting. Actually, this is my 2nd most interesting, but most interesting=most favorited for me so I submit this one per the rules.

    Nice image. It's really creative and the kind of image you just don't see. I like the numberrs in the middle.

    where can you get red circuit boards?
    what products do you find them in?

    It's actually a light greenish color. I have a red gel covering the flash which "paints" it red. It's an older board and it let a lot of light through, enough to overpower the green.

    As for actual red circuit boards, I've seen them in computers for graphics cards and motherboards, but not too often. Sorry I'm not much help!

    You know this would look perfect as the backing fabric of a quilt I'm planning. Would you mind if I used this or the white one? Please?!?
  • lungstruck 5y

    @quilt - That is fine as long as it is not for profit. All I ask is that you share a photo of the finished product :-)
  • quilt-o-mania 5y

    Hi Lungstruck, thanks! No, it's not for profit but for a gift for my dear cousin and his lovely, lovely wife on their combined 50th birthday and silver wedding anniversary. And yes, I will post a photo of the finished product.

    Many thanks for your support!

    Very cool. I look forward to seeing it!

    Here's a shot of both circuitboard photos printed onto fabric with a mirror repeat.
    Spoonflower delivers! by quilt-o-mania

    I think I need to tweak the b/w one a bit and will then use that one.

    Very cool! Thanks for sharing, it looks very nice, the mirror repeat works well.
