my entry to '52 weeks' contest by @wwwiebe

( the initial post & rules , all 52 prompts, this week entry )

IMG_8562w.jpg

This week prompt was 'Macro', so I decided to make a focus stake of a few macro shots I did last summer. A splendid raspberry, isnt it? Taken with Canon 5D, Sigma 150mm tele, no tripod / artificial lighting (just a punch of x-processing effect added in pShop).


Also it is my 1st post to the new Steemit community: GEMS... and with this post I'm doing a little PR and raise awareness about it.

Those who follow me a while may know that I am not a big fan of shooting food or cooking recipes (simply: I cant do it well!), probably with this one exception of macro. When I'm feeling attacked by a harsh inspiration, of course I do shoot food object... and here are some examples. Some of these macros I have shared, sometimes in alter takes, thru the nTopaz app -- and I should note I was left pretty disencouraged getting close-to-zero curation, I believe this is a decent efforts, worth a bit more rewarding...

A nutmeg. (Same setup, except a halogen lighting; no focus stacking applied here) .

Anchovies! Served me as a breakfast a while ago.

Persimmons -- I love everything about them, except their taste. Which I simply dont tolerate :)) Sounds stupid, but things like that do happen... Especially I love to watch it (every other edition is different, personal, unique -- its a pure magic!) and to hold in my hands... and to take pictures, of course. This was my 1st experience (a happy one!) in the focus stacking technology, by the way..

Here are some figs -- my attempt to do portrait 'in a low-key'. Natural lighting and no focus stack here.

Honey and nuts -- best natural food ever!

If looking at this photo, you will feel irresistable desire to throw away your McDonalds burger, and instead of it getting honey and nuts and other natural food, I will feel my mission accomplished!

These are great macros and you are right, they deserve more curation.
You have certainly found the better motifs than I have found for this weeks theme - I wish you much luck to win this week, my friend 😊


I would be quite !DERANGED if I didn't give you a !BEER and a !COFFEEA for this $trdo post 😉

You have certainly found the better motifs than I

not necessarily! it may look nicer, but no way better
your (deer?) jawbone is way more intresting. btw I once have photographed bones (skeleton) of a snake. not a macro, tho. maybe I will post it one day, it turned out a funny photo.
!DERANGED !BEER !MARLIANS

I do prefer your photos though - and a skeleton of a snake might really be quite interesting I believe.
At least my bone is something you don't see every day ;)


A hot morning !COFFEEA is very important for me to wake up from my !DERANGED dreams 😉

as there are no deers around, probably I havent seen such a stuff in whole my life! and its macro, so all tiny lovely details attached. I am sure contestholder will choose something unusual to top this round. will see!

Tiny details - yes ... lovely details - no ;) lol
Believe me, I haven't seen such a bone neither and I would prefer nice images to win 🙂


A hot morning !COFFEEA is very important for me to wake up, but later on a cold !BEER would be nice to have 😉

These are some great shots! It got me thinking of making a still life. I wonder if I have still life as a theme. Hmm. Need to look.

It's somewhat funny what you say about persimmons. I had a manager once who could not stand even the small of a banana; it'd make him nauseous. Of course, we'd all bring bananas into staff meetings. 😂

still life, or 'bodegon', could be a nice addition, yes

thanks for the kind words. I do love some of these, too, even despite of bad focus :P

These are very beautiful shots! I loved the one with the nutmeg, gives me such a "home sweet home" vibe... Maybe it's the browns. Very nice job ❤️

"home sweet home" vibe <-- ah, thats sweet. I am so pleased. thank you too for the kind words. !DERANGED
