Scavenger Hunt #33 – Tool

Close-up of a multitude of small screwdriver tips, slanted at a roughly 15 degrees angle.

While I used the previous Hunt to experiment with composites and story-telling, I wanted to go “back to basics” for this Hunt, and try to get maybe closer from my comfort zone, but also closer to pictures that feel like “me”. But, for the personal challenge, I shot everything with my 100mm macro lens!

Pierre recently got a iFixIt tool kit that contains aaaaall the small tool bits, so I knew that this would be a prime candidate for “macro-like-shot-of-tools”. When I opened the box and saw all the tips well aligned, I knew I wouldn’t have to look much further indeed. I got multiple shots, playing with the light to get some highlights but avoid a completely flat picture, getting reasonable depth of field and sharpness, and this is what I landed on:

A multitude of screwdriver tips.

Lenssmc PENTAX-D FA MACRO 100mm F2.8 WR
Focal length100 mm
Exposure time1.6 s

One of the other shots I had had a tilt/slant to it, which I liked, so I rotated that image in post. I also wanted the black support foam to be darker, and the image to have warmer tones, so I did that.
