Hey there,

I haven't found the time for more "needle" experiments, but to keep things going I'll add early shots I did to get a feeling what it would be like to shot things through the needles "eye".

1 - "premium" (random text)



#2 - the whole thing (you see - that's a very high sophisticated setup :G)



Regards,
Th.

No.

The problem with red wine is that my wife prefers white wine and if I open a bottle red one it's (mostly) up to me to empty it... and a whole bottle is a bit too much for me in the evening when I have to get up at 6:00 next morning. :?:G

But the cork came in handy...

Great shots that interpret the challenge literally.

That looks like a rather large needle. What is it used for?

Thanks all - the needle is the biggest darning needle I could find in our household - it isn't really used that much any more since socks (or else) won't be darned these days normally - only if self-knitted and that's quite rare.

I bet you could also use it for leather-works, but it is a bit thick for this which makes it hard to push it throgh the leather OR you'll make rather huge holes... but I lost track.

I was planning to use this needle with some kind of studio-setup to photograph REAL SMALL things literally through a needle, but due to business trips and busy weekends today was my first day with some free time (on the road again over the next days, sigh) so I am really sad I can't contribute more - it's not the challenge (in the means of being to hard etc) it's just the missing time/place etc. - really sorry, but can't help it.

Regards,
Th.
