299:365 - Beads

Philippe: I bought two bags of 'accent beads' for a few dollars from a craft store. Fun with a macro lens ensued :D


this was taken at a stupid aperture (f40, I believe) to get everything in focus.



Manual macro focus (that worked :D )



Though you can clearly see the dust on the ball, I figured the actual reflection of the beads in the hematite ball was worth it. :)

Yup, I used to work in a store that had a craft department, so I recognize the subject...
And you know, with a program like Photoshop you could pull up a bit more detail out of your shadows, but I like the photos -- you're on to something...
