For this week’s FlickrFriday challenge “Second Wind” and Macro Mondays challenge “High Key”.
To get the high key effect, I used the white space of Macro Monday’s discussion of the theme as the background, and used a full-spectrum light on the front of the fan, from off to the right. This really brought out the texture.

They’re seeds… that corn… They make corn… They’re corners… That works, right?
I used the flash on this one to enhance the contours of the dish and to bring out the satin and shine of the kernels. I found that flashing at 50% zoom brings out the best contrasts in macro photos, at least for me with the Canon G16.
For #FlickrFriday’s “Corner” and Macro Mondays’ “Seeds” challenges.
You can’t make a cornier pun than this one. But I can, of corn.

An experiment in depth perception. I tried to focus on the foreground and exaggerate the depth of the background to make an inch-high wad of shredded white paper look like a great height. Lighting from the side instead of directly on the subject helps with the effect.
