Foot Fetish Anyone?

My original plan for following Brandi was to get a close-up of a broom. Low and behold, it's about as disgusting as you'd imagine. The dust and dirt just don't need to be seen that close. While I was shooting the broom, I noticed this image just out of the frame and decided it was kismet. So I repositioned (meaning my aim was moved about an inch - no lie!) and shot this guy:

Canon 30D
Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro
Aperture f/2.8
Shutter 1/10, 1/4, and 0.6
ISO 100
Ambient Lighting

Any guess where this guy is? I love that I could make it seem a bit 3D by focusing on the front foot while tilting the surface of the image. You gotta love messing with the viewer.

Anyway, I also chose to do this using HDR. I was hoping to get more detail. In all honesty, I don't think it was necessary for this image. But it never hurts to throw crap at the wall and see what sticks.

My connection is fairly obvious - this guy is walking out of the frame, similar to B's sweeper. I wish I had more time to experiment. Isn't that always the case?

Time to put B to bed - duty calls. Hope you're having a great weekend!



  1. ARRGH, A bottle of spirits? Looks like a Scottish-man, Is he name Johnny Walker- It should be.

  2. LOL, I have no interest in seeing the end of a broom close up anyway. This is a great pic.
