Another shot from Tuesday afternoon’s ringlash macro frenzy.

This image started off with me going out of my mind because I hadn’t taken a photo for nearly two weeks. On Tuesday afternoon, a public holiday, I grabbed my Fuji S7000, stuck on my ringflash, selected super macro and went in search of macro candidates. One of these was an energy saving light bulb hanging in a wall-mounted light fitting with no shade. Because there is a dresser beneath it I couldn’t frame the photo in the viewfinder or LCD so I just stuck the lens up to the bulb, with the ring flash literally around it, hoped the auto focus would work and fired off a few frames. One of these was useable but pretty boring on its own so I started playing around with giving the tubes colour and make them appear to glow. This worked pretty well so I went on and made this grid of differently coloured lights.

This penguin was quite comical to watch. Unable to keep his balance while waddling down this huge boulder, he resorted to sliding down on his tail and feet.
