It’s been awhile since I have posted in my personal photo project (3P52) so I thought I’d do one this time. For this week’s inspiration, I thought about photographing things that most of us come in contact with – inanimate things that we touch once or even more every single day. These are things we leave our fingerprints and our scent on.
All the shots today were taken from my Nikon D7000 camera using 18-105mm lens and Nikon SB900 flash. No special setup done as far as background or lighting except for using my flash. Images were processed in Adobe Lightroom and MacPhun software. One of the main reasons I did this shoot today is to play with the different MacPhun applications. I used the MacPhun Intensify Pro, MacPhun Focus 2 Pro, MacPhun Tonality Pro. I got these for Christmas as a present from my husband and so far I’m having a lot of fun with them. I love the software but beware of their customer service. Their customer service is close to none.*
But anyway, for this week’s theme I’d start with a doorknob or a door handle. Everyone goes in and out of doors every day, whether it be the door in your house or a car, there’s a knob or handle that we touch to open and/or close it. For this shot, you might notice that there’s some sort of texture on the handle itself, and that is because there is. I added a paper texture and brushed it on the handle to make it look interesting. I also put some “phun” into it by adding a little bit of motion using the application.
Next is toothbrush. Everyone brushes their teeth (I hope) at least once a day. Even young children can hold their own toothbrush and brush their teeth. I wanted to focus the arched design on the surface as I thought this was the most interesting part of this toothbrush. I took this shot from my bathroom sink.
