It’s strange how random things catch your eye sometimes. I saw this champagne cork leftover from a New Years party sitting by itself on a black marble countertop and boom, inspiration. It turned out to be a really fun image that would actually look great as a piece of background art at a bar or restaurant, or even in a den or library at home. Floating canvas would be the way to go since the image sort of floats in space on it’s own.
Taken with a Carl Zeiss 100mm Makro Planar lens, f/6.3, shot at the minimum focus distance. Super soft transition between the sharp subject and the soft out of focus background.
I took a black and white version as well (because I couldn’t resist)…

It’s time to ring in the New York of 2014, so let’s celebrate! After today, this image would make a wonderful artistic piece in any kitchen or dining area with a simple single mat black gallery frame that showcases the crisp focus and detail of the glass, and the soft out of focus background of the wine bottles.
Taken with a Carl Zeiss 100mm Makro Planar lens, which produces the most beautiful bokeh of any lens I’ve ever used… backgrounds are incredibly soft with a very smooth transition between in-focus and out-of-focus areas.
