A Photo a Week Challenge: Glass

The prompt for the A Photo a Week Challenge: Glass was rather well timed for me. I had been photographing part cups of coffee and a variety of other glass objects a month or so ago. Then I thought about what some photographer’s refer to as glass.

A partially drunk cup of coffee. I used a gold reflector to bounce some of the light back onto the glass.

I’d rather be behind the camera than sitting in front of the computer editing photos.

Or simply a different view of a chocolate chip cookie. In a way a follow-up to my Week 1 GIN post.

52 week photo project

Week 1. GIN

Week 1 of my 52 week photo project for 2018 and something a little different.

GIN, although not the alcoholic beverage. Taken with a digital camera using a high magnification macro lens from my film shooting days. The lens used was an Olympus OM Zuiko 38mm f/2.8. I used it quite a lot in the ’80s and early ’90s photographing subjects for nature photography photo libraries but it has hardly been used in the past couple of decades.

And for anyone wondering what the above photo is of.
