Macro in a Mason Jar, Part Deux

January 9th, 2011

My photographer buddy David Perry has once again been chosen as judge for a groovy photo contest at the Gardening Gone Wild site.

The theme is “Macro in a Mason Jar”. Dave started this whole thought process a while back, and is now extending his unique adventures to other venues. I’m glad to see this, because his technique is so simple.

The light was good tonight, so I took out my trusty G6, an empty jar, and played.

I thought I would take a walk around my back yard and see what was going on. There was snow, fallen leaves, but not much color – other than my Holly bushes. They were shining in bright green amongst the snow and brown fallen leaves from fall.

I gathered some samples and put them in my mason jar and made some images. Here are some examples:

I challenge you to take some time out of your busy day and think of other cool ways to make images. If you find some groovy idea, please share it with all of us.

    I love this concept! Thanks for sharing it! I’m going to try this myself, and I’m also going to pass the idea on to the Project 365 group!
