Macro and Still Life

This week's assignment was macro and still life photography.  Here are my submissions for the macro portion of my assignment:

The chain links on our swing set-

A paper bead on my necklace from Uganda-

Texture on some old barn wood-

Rusty nail head-

These next two still life photos were taken inside a cardboard box lined with white poster board and tissue paper.  Made a nice mini studio!  If you ever need to take shots like these and wonder how to set it up very inexpensively, check out this link for full instructions.

Thanks for that link - will come in handy as I keep selling random stuff we don't need/use/can't fit in our house.

My favourites are the weathered wood and vase of flowers. I love how you styled the flowers with leaves outside the vase, too.

Elisa, that is a great point! I didn't even think about using this set up for shots of things we need to sell. Thanks for the tip! :-)
