I rented a wood-splitter earlier this August, and as I was splitting the wood, I noticed how the structure of the wood was very different when it is split under pressure as opposed to being cut. I’m always on the lookout for patterns and structures that are different than the normal things we see every day. So I have started a series of images with “torn” wood as a landscape.
The images were photographed with a Canon 50d and a 100mm f2.8 macro lens. I was originally thinking that I would get closer, using my bellows or thimble lens, but as I photographed, I got stuck in the 1:2 or 1:1 magnification range. Maybe some of my newer images that I hope to do soon will be in the 2x-5x range. Hopefully I can shoot some of those soon and post them before the middle of December.
I hope you like what you see, because so far I like what I’ve been experimenting with, and I hope to keep going… So tell me, which one is your favorite?
