This weeks theme was chosen by my good buddy Chris and is "Seed" I was going to double it up with the Teazle from the last shot but thought i should try harder to come up with an image. After a bit of scouting around the house for Conkers that the kids have discarded, and considering slicing trough a banana and taking a Macro shot of the seeds I didn't really fancy either idea.
It was when I was in the garage and just about to shut the door that I spotted the big bag of mixed bird seed that we give to our feathered friends during the winter months. I grabbed it and brought it inside to use.
I attempted a macro shot, but It didn't appeal to me, and I tried a couple of other things too. then I thought about incorporating some txt into the image. And this was the result. Two light setup again. One in my DIY softbox as the key, and one bounced off my "weird" ceiling as a fill source.
The jaunty angle to give the shallower DOF involved me getting nice and close and having to twist round at a nasty angle to get the shot. And the only lens with a wide enough angle of view to get it was the Sigma 10-20mm which is turning out to be a very useful bit of glass :-)
Have a gander at the other boys stuff. >>>>>
