I promise to let up on the macro close-up pictures soon, however, this image was just too neat to pass on.
This is our blind cat, Zena (or Xena – I always forget).She is 100% blind, so she sat still while I hovered a scant few inches from her face and she never knew it. Makes a great subject!
I used my Promaster Close-up+4 filter on this shot again (since I don’t own a true macro lens), and utilized the flash to enable the smaller aperture. I really wanted strong detail on this one.

I love taking a unique look at the ordinary. I am going to do a little mini series of close-up shots of normal items. Today, we look at this. I will let you figure out what ‘it’ is. These should not be too hard since I don’t own a real macro lens, meaning no super close shots for me.
‘It’ was lit from the above left with 3 halogen track lights, and from the right with my Promaster 7500EDF Flash aimed away and right from the camera about 45 degrees, bouncing off the ceiling. The 2 different lighting sources gave it this nice 2 color light reflection.
I will add one hint about ‘it’. I think ‘it’ actually belongs to Jeremy Albert, but has been in my hands for more than 5 years for an unknown reason.
