Toronto Refracted

I spent sometime over the weekend practicing the new macro skills I attained at last week’s workshop. I set everything up on my kitchen table but I wanted to try something different. Instead of using a flower as a backdrop I printed a map of downtown Toronto that I found on the internet to see how that would work as a refracted image.

Here it is and don’t forget click on the image to see a higher resolution version that’s much sharper. Stay tuned, later this week I’ll go through everything I use to create these types of images.

    • Thanks Laurie. I said I would post something this week explaining how I go about it but unfortunately I’ve been under the weather for a couple of days. I’ll have something up on the blog either on the weekend or Monday.

    • Thanks Mike. I’m using a Tamron 90mm Macro and for these I also added extension tubes.
