Sunday Still - Macro



I don't normally like doctoring photos, but this particular shot begged to be converted to black and white. One of the Photoshop options was "newspaper" and I love how it washed out the white yarn and upped the contrast. Hooks on Kromski spinning wheel.



A friend's Lincoln longwool fleece.



There's a name for this part and I am drawing a complete blank - Jensen wheel.



Punkin yarn on the Jensen wheel.





On the steps out front - Doone Valley Thyme in melting snow. A nice little hint of green.

For more Sunday Stills...

Really nice macros. Always fun to see how you make yarn. :)

Impressive macro photos. I especially like the Punkin yarn on the Jensen wheel because of it's contrasts in color and texture and focus. Great composition, Sara.

That white wool is so pure looking!
That part is called the crank and footman.

Excellent depth of field on all your shots...my camera just doesn't give me that much...or it's 'operator error.'

I'm becoming more and more enamored with black & white photography. How I wish I could figure out how to do macro shots with my camera! Perhaps I can't. Perhaps I would need a special lens. Do you use a digital or 35mm camera?

Nice macros; I have to say that although I love the wool shot, my favorite is the green amidst the snow- makes me long for spring!

I finally bought a spinning wheel, now I have to learn how to use one ;-)

Michelle said...

Love all the macro shots, although I was looking for the mS one. :-)

Linda said...

Wonderful, the depth of field on the first shot is fabulous.
