iPod! Nice idea. Even the straggling hair is evocative.

What a statement about the world we live in!
Hey, I hear we're gonna have another chance to take snow pictures.

Oh, is March supposed to be macros like Feb was B&W? I'm may join you on this!

Ampersand said...

Jess - Oh, I just made up the challenge for myself. I wanted to try something new :-).

Hey, Amp, is that your own ear or what? If so, that must've been hard to get positioned.

cook shot.

AI... woohoo.

Yep.

Ampersand said...

Wow, Dali, what a thought. I don't think I could have done my own ear and kept the camera still enough.

With my little point and shoot, I have to put it on the long exposure setting for the close-ups to keep it from using the flash. Then, camera stability is of utmost concern!

Oh, so that's my daughter's ear :-). Her ears are so tiny. And one of her ears is pointy. She made me shoot the non-pointy ear :-).

I really like it! Cute ear, and artisticly very organic and abstract.

I'd recognize those iPod ear buds anywhere.! You're having a good time with macro month aren't ya - and putting out some neat pictures. I was also wondering how in the world you took a picture of your own ear like that. Your comment about your dd asking you to photograph the non-pointy ear made me lol.

You know, Kim, every time you can put the camera on a flat surface for the macros, do it. I will use the edge of a counter, a book on a table, the handrailing of an outdoor walk, the ground... It's nearly impossible to stabilize the camera for long enough exposures for macros.

So for your ear buds, I probably would have asked her to bend down near the edge fo the kitchen counter and told her to NOT MOVE. :) Maybe you did this. But it has helped me a lot to always stabilize the camera by letting it sit somewhere.

Ampersand said...

Julie -- Totally agree with your strategy to use surfaces to stabalize. And when I can't put the camera against a surface, I use the palm of my other hand to press the camera against -- workable although not as effective as a suface.

Oh, and I just ordered that cool little tripod that you had on your 365 blog a while back. Can't wait to get it!
