    So, I'm bored, and awake, which resulted in more testing of my new diffuser (large softbox MK1; consists of a hacked up milk bottle and some baking paper).

    Tested at 2x (mag), as it's actually easier to use my current lighting rig with the 2x TC involved than with the bare lens. Need to sort out another bracket...

    All of these are uncropped.
    All of the subject matter is literally on my desk.

    1- You never know how hard your watch's life has been until you try and photograph it

    2- USB

    3- Sound card

    4- Ball Point

    5- VGA pins

    6- 3.5mm Audio Jack

    7- Beer

    Anything take your interest, or is this only interesting to me because it's the middle of the night? :Paranoid:

    Nice work man, you're certainly getting the shots right, I see what you mean about the watch having a hard life, you wouldn't notice those scratches without the huge magnification!

    Pretty cool. I especially like the VGA pins and the beer.

    I'm with you on that one, although some beers are best when they're not ice cold...

    Thanks, mate. Anytime.

    Hmmm...

    That's why.

    Anything in a clear bottle is not worth drinking, hence the coloured glass.

    Cheers, Ozy. The beer bottle shot appeals to me too, for some reason. :weirdo:
