Last week, I was telling you about a day shooting micro-printing on paper currency using a macro lens on a macro bellows. It’s part of a personal project I am building on money concepts. Today’s post is about showing the results of exploring the five dollar bill and the one hundred dollar bill.
To be honest, I didn’t even know about the micro printing in the edge decoration when I was taking the photograph above. I was simply framing the five at the time.
More, after the jump.
As I mentioned last week, when working with a macro lens on a bellows, the distances tend to be really close for focusing and lighting. Things have to really flat, too, because the slice that is actually in focus at those distances is only a couple of millimeters.
I had wanted to see how in-close I could get on Lincoln’s portrait on the back of the five.
I’ll finish with two shots off of the hundred dollar bill.
