I made this image for a text book cover.
4x5 Ektachrome EPP, 8 1/4" Nikkor lens.
Wish I could get my pots so clean and shiny. Nice shot.
Nice clean shot! Makes me want to go cook!!! Good job!!! : )
wow! incredible!!! how you did it? Share!!! How you got so white background? That's an amazing shot like all those in stock photo. sites!
Pete, this impresses me MUCH.
Reminds me of the DorlingKindersley books that I love so much, and of their sharp and clean photographic illustration. I always like just the object and the white background in those, too!!! Only there they are in colour. But the b+w is perfect here! WOW.
Well, as you would expect, reflections were a challange. I surrounded the pots with white seemless paper and cut a whole for the lens. Burnt through some Polaroid checking the reflections and ratio. Color balance was tricky too (yup, Corinna... it's color!), so I got as close as I could using CC filters and OF COURSE... tweeked it in Photoshop.
Thanks for all the kind words!
210mm Nikkor? The AM or the W?
ooooooo... I'm not a wealthy man. It's the W.
I can remember only one macro job that came my way. Nice to find someone who can appreciate this aging gear.
Very Impressive photo, thanks for your story on your effort. It made me appreciate the shot even more. :hail:
Very, very nice
Oh, there are so many things that I can appreciate. Helps me to see an awful lot more about someone than you would credit.
