These are dried chickpeas with a lettuce background. Shot using a copy stand, side lit on both sides at slightly more than 1/2 power. It was shot at f32 at 3/4ths of a second and the magnification is 1:1.
This is a turnip that I shot using a copy stand. I turned the side lights to half power. Like the chickpeas, It was shot at F32 at 3/4ths of a second and the magnification is 1:1.
I took this picture with a 55mm lens and an extention tube, which gave a magnification of 1:1. I am lucky to have such a sweet cat who doesn't mind being flashed with an SB900. Well, OK he started to get tired after the first ten attempts. Its hard to shoot macro without a tripod!

For our assignment we were given an MP3 file of a Thom Yorke song. The only requirements were that we include at least 30 seconds of the Yorke song and the total video had to be 1 min to 1.5 minutes. I photographed many sheets of paper using a flash and then added them to IMOVIE at .3 sec intervals. I repeated the color sequence a few times. For the sound I took samples of the song that I liked and tried my best to blend them together. I was not happy with the results because I was unable to match beats using the software and a discerning ear can tell where the audio clips are repeated.
