Red Tomato – Recent Macro Studio Work

Red Tomato

Red Tomato is another image from my “On Black” series, which comprises of macro work done in my studio. This image was photographed in my studio using a macro lens, a variety of lights and modifiers and using a photographic technique called image stacking to create the final image.  The final image consists of numerous images which were stacked and blended to achieve greater in-focus depth of field.  A texture was added to the background. The image will be professionally printed using the giclée method and will last for decades under proper lighting conditions. The print would be a prefect addition to any home or workplace environment.  More of my work can be viewed at susanmcanany.com or at my Etsy Store. Thanks for taking a look.


Creative Work in the Studio

Creative work in my studio is proving once again that I am attracted to shooting inanimate stuff creatively earning me the name of “object chick”.

I am working on a new series of prints and one thing I am discovering  is I really do love working  in my studio and creating art out of something very mundane or ordinary. If I like the results (and often I don’t), I feel like I have hit the jackpot. Someone very dear to me once said “You are really are an object chick” and it got me thinking that some of my best work has come out of my studio doing tabletop work. Maybe the benefits of having complete control of subject and surroundings allows me to really create from deep within. Maybe I just enjoy having all my toys available in one room. Whatever the reason,  I am happy I am in a zone and here is one piece I have been working on lately. The pomegranate was photographed with my MP-E65 super macro lens mounted on Really Right Stuff’s Focus Rail and is a combination of 9 captures.  Thanks for stopping by and more of my work can be viewed at Susan McAnany Photography.
