US Quarter (25¢)

Happy New Year guys! It is almost 2013! Can you believe a year has passed already? Sure went fast! :) Hope you all have a wonderful time. Let's introduce you to my photos for today. Today I have some photos I took of a US Quarter (25¢) under macro photography conditions. Macro photography like this is great for when the weather is not so nice outside and you are stuck at home bored. :) I took these on a day like that. All of these shots were done with the help of my handy Kenko Extension Tubes. They are great for cheap macro photography, plus you can add these to macro lenses to get greater magnification. If you are interested, get yourself a set today! These extension tubes have electrical contacts which are also covered, so it won't cause any distortions, and you can still control your aperture! They are also very high quality and rugged, plus you are saving a lot compared to Canon by buying 3rd party.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To see my best macro photography shots of 2012, use this link.

I set the US Quarter (25¢) on a DVD that failed the burning process to add some colors. 

I thought the above setup made it look a bit flat, so I covered the top of the US Quarter (25¢) with some water. Then I circled a flashlight around during the exposure to try to add some color to the DVD. It didn't work, but it added a cool white circle on the US Quarter (25¢).  

Here is the back of the US Quarter (25¢). Turns out to be a Tennessee US Quarter (25¢). I also added water to this. 

This is all the macro shots I have for you today! Hope you have enjoyed all the colors and details of these shots! :) I also hope I have  provided you with some ideas about indoor photography on a bad weather day. If you are interested in cheap macro photography, please consider getting Kenko Extension Tubes. They are great and I have no regretted my purchase (except I wish they were a bit cheaper)!
