Oil Spill

Scott Frederick Photography

Nikon D7000, Nikkor 40mm f/2.8 Micro, 40mm, f/18, ISO 100, 1/250th

I was experimenting with some Macro shots with my new Nikkor 40mm Micro lens and really enjoy the close focus that can be achieved with this type of lens.  It’s not an ideal macro focal length at 40mm but since I’m not shooting bugs and insects, I find this lens to fulfill my macro needs!  This image was achieved by using a glass Pyrex baking dish and some DVD covers underneath to add some color, which I later decided to go monochrome! I added some water to olive oil and a Nikon Speedlight off-camera to illuminate from underneath. It’s a rather simple setup and best of all you can shoot this type of photography anywhere in a dark room.

Edith Levy - LOve this Scott. Terrific macro. I just purchased a Macro lens when I was in New York last week and will be putting it to the test this weekend.

Chris Maskell - B&W works for me, it focuses the eye on the actual patterns the oil is making. Great shot, wish I could be that creative.
