June 18: Can you guess what this is?
I did my usual walk at lunch, but was not happy with any of the miriad of shots I had taken so at 9PM I started looking for a picture of the day. I grabbed the macro and setup the R1 flash system on the lens and started hunting shots. I took several, got some nice shots of glasses, but with a macro they really need to be clean and not dusty like the ones in our china cabinet. Guess I know what I am doing tomorrow night, washing crystal.
I found this item that is used on something that has been pictured on more than one POD that I have seen. This is a close up shot, 1:1 of the item, toward one end of it.
105mm VR macro in manual mode
R1 Flash system on the ring with diffusers set at -2/3 EV and - 1.7 EV
+5 black, +15 clarity, +.3 exposure in Lightroom
I see there are a lot of hit, but no correct guess. It is leather and it is tooled. It is long and narrow and not a belt
I will answer more questions later tonight as I am super busy at work. I have to finish a briefing in 10 min for a 1-3 presentation. I beleive there is a shot of it on my site
