Sally Russick of the studio sublime gave us the prompt this week to explore a macro shot. Specifically “glimps a world that you may never have noticed until you observed it magnified!” I bought a dSLR at the start of the year and still I have not fully explored and taken the training wheels off ie, taken it off the auto settings. I hope to start experimenting with that before we hit the half way point. This was taken with the auto macro setting.
I decided to share this one with you since I love how the noon sun (which I was just about to filter through some vellum) is strong enough to shine through the layers of translucent polymer and actually show a shadow from the bits of copper leaf. Coooool!
These beads may or may not end up in some of my bead soup pieces. The reveal, originally scheduled for tomorrow was postponed until next weekend. More than fine by me since I’m so not done. Nope the fine details of my partner Cindy Ritchie's gorgeous lampwork has my brain off and running in so many directions. At this point I have one piece complete (using none of the required elements), one in the basically done stage, three in the partially constructed/mostly conceived stage, and three more in the “this could work” stage. With more time I figured what a great excuse to go all out and really play.
I had so much fun last week hearing everyone’s stories about rings, hidden and returning, and so on in the comments, thank you for sharing ladies!
As always I look forward to seeing all the up close and well, likely personal, photos at the link up on Sally’s post
