- Macro photography is close-up photography of usually very small subjects.
- The classical definition is that the image projected on the digital sensor is close to the same size as the subject (1:1)
TiMACROfied – Macro Guessing Game!!
What to expect:
I use a combination of lenses and sometimes extension tubes to achieve a higher ratio than just using a true macro lens (1:1). I estimate my images to be nearer to 3:1.
- In essence that means you are seeing a much smaller surface area of the objects I am photographing.
- It makes it more challenging but the images are often more abstract and more interesting than traditional similar macro guessing games whereby the participants just find a photo, crop it, and then make the people guess the cropped section.
My TiMACROfied images are never cropped, just really really close ;-)
So the surface area of the object you are trying to guess is the same area of Lincolns head! Pretty tiny!!
I post a (TiMACROfied) SUPER macro and you try to guess what the image is.
- The items are (usually) typical normal everyday items most people would have in their homes. We have 3 kids, so it’s a good bet that toys will occupy a large segment of the items I photograph!
- I never post anything evil/gross….like extreme close up of body parts, fly vomit, or naval lint. Though at times, for instance, food can look quite ominous!
- You are free to ask questions, ex. is it edible? And I will try my best to give clues when needed.
Gets any 4×6 image of their choice from my website. But you are responsible for giving me the link to the image(s) you want ;-)
And/But, to conserve on po$tage, I will wait until 3-4 images are guessed correctly before I mail them out :-)
Ideally, I’d like to have the game to be run strictly from my blog, http://www.timsdd.com/
But since I will be harassing my FB friends to participate, leaving cmts in the NetworkedBlogs feed will be the best bet.
Look for the posts that look like: 6 hours ago via NetworkedBlogs, and have at it! :-)
