Once again, I’ve taken my iPhone 4 to the bottle containing a carbonated beverage. This time it’s Sprite, and this time the bottle is plastic. With the bubbles I see in the bottle, it seems like there’s a great long exposure opportunity!
This is a simple shot. I started with a Coke bottle, about half-filled with Coke — you can see the color of the bottle throughout the image. Then I took my iPhone 4, placed the camera lens right on top of the mouth of the bottle, turned on the flash, and grabbed this image.??To me, it almost looks as though there’s an eye, staring back at me from the bottom of the bottle.
Tonight, I had a little fun. After discovering that my Logitech NuLOOQ puck is no longer supported by Logitech (Boo!), I decided it might make a fun little thing to deconstruct. Within the puck, there’s a cool little circular circuit board that, when inverted, rides atop three springs.
This is where the fun comes in.
When the base is held, the circuit board can be twisted, released, and makes for a great bit of circular action that is pretty cool looking on a long-ish exposure.
Casey, Rick and I wandered around Shaw Nature Reserve again this weekend. Along the way, I found this great pond with the most brilliant green scum atop it. While photographing something on the other end of the pond, I noticed that my shadow was creating a great-opportunity for a unique self-portrait in the early morning sun. A click later, I’d captured my shadow atop the green pondscum.
Darla starts planting come Spring every year. This year, she’s decided to give sunflowers a go, and has them started indoors in a little starter tray. I’m amazed at how much these little things can grow in a day’s time. And true to their name, these little guys reach out toward the sun, angling themselves for the best possible view.
I’m still playing with my deconstructed electronics. This image is of the infrared LED from a remote control. I used my light table to illuminate the scene, which sure makes it easy on me!
I made this image with my Canon 7D and Canon MP-E 65/2.8 macro lens. A little cleaning up in Lightroom, and I was done.
