Jeez, this photo almost looks computer generated

from adafruit.com/xbee this is one half of a two-way radio data link. photo: oly e3, 50mm f2.0 macro lens, raw capture mode and 2 passes of ‘neatimage’ for noise reduction (gives it that almost-synthetic clean look). subject was shot inside a DIY lightbox with a sheet of black plastic (ABS) as the base.

  1. Looks very nice. The black plastic might be just a little too dark. I would suggest a light blue cloth, bunched up just enough to give it some “Texture/contrast” for a background.

  2. Agree with the comment above. Black is almost always a poor choice for a background unless the subject only contains bright colors. In this case, the blue and the black don’t have enough contrast against each other so you can see the full detail of the photo. … and yes, I’m a photo geek and electronics geek at the same time. :-)
