Busting out a quick one today. Tried making a little pattern out of my ties, all of which contain their own bold but different patterns. Setting this up made me realize that for a guy that wears a tie 4 times a year (usually the same one), I have a lot of ties.
I got nice and close with my 90mm f2.8 Macro lens. Shot at 1/100 of a second, f25, and ISO 100, which removed all ambient light. Had a flash above on both sides, with one at a slightly lower power output. They were angled a bit towards the camera so that there weren’t any shadows showing.
