In honor of the 3 full Months I’ve been on this now, today’s 365 project comes in 3 parts…

Part 1: the Original

D7000. 24mm f/2.8 ai, reversed, on 104mm of extensions, and mounted on a GorillaPod and attempting to focus on the dust on the MacBook Pro, when I scooched when I should’ve leaned and banged the lens against the front corner of the computer…

No damage to the mbp or the 24mm, but a bit of paint scuffed off of the mount and stuck to the computer. This is the black bit in the center of the photo.

This version has only straightening applied, about 2 degrees worth.

ISO100, 1/250th, f/2.8. SB700, zoomed to 70mm, at 1/128th power, handheld and aimed straight down on the corner from about 4 inches, and triggered with the Cactus V5 triggers.

Stay tuned for Part II: Girl’s Best Friend and Part III: Bad 1970s Concert Poster.
