I am entering this photo into 3 challenges: LEM - theme is Anything, Macro Friday, and Texture Twist.
And I thought I'd give you a little peek into my "studio" for this shot:
I used my dad's Nikon D80 for this shot, but I use this setup for my Samsung, too. I'm not a professional photographer, so I don't have any reflectors or tripods or shutter remotes or basically any fancy equipment at all. I sit with the window behind me (shades tilted if the sun is too bright) and I use food to keep my camera steady. This time, it was a bag of barley. Sometimes, it's rice or flour... Whatever I can find that is solid but slightly soft, so I can settle the camera into the perfect angle.
It's all about cheap, quick, and easy for me right now. Maybe someday I'll own a DLSR and I'll have a mini-studio set up in a more permanent location. Until then, I'm doing it my way... On the coffee table!
