Day 1 – Beetle

Ok, so here’s the first shot of my photo a day project. Had a busy day so didn’t have the time to set too much up for a shoot. Stumbled across this really weird beetle on a window ledge so setup the flash on a wireless trigger. I got out my D700, unfortunately I don’t have a macro lens so I made do with my Nikkor 50mm 1.8D with some extension tubes. Was quite happy with the shot but ran it through the ‘duplex’ preset in Color Efex Pro to get the final image.

Hope you like it, click the image below to enlarge.
