One Shot #7 | Rugged Terrain

A potato chip (Lay's Cheesy Garlic Bread), photographed with the Pentax FA 100mm f/2.8 Macro at f/13.

A Neewer LED macro ring light arrived today, and was used to light this shot. I will confess to unthinkingly firing a few test shots while mounting the light to the camera, so I guess I need to say a few Hail Ansels or something.

The light works well enough, and it’s bright enough for true  macro photography, where it’s very close to the subject. It doesn’t do much at, say, portraiture distances. I got it for $14.49 as an open box item from Amazon Warehouse, and everything looked basically brand-new.
