Fun with Stars and Stripes
I love photographing macro subjects’ indoors on rainy days and I decided to experiment with a light box I had from the days of shooting slides. I set the light table on the floor and placed an American Flag bandana on it effectively backlighting it. I then elevated a clear plastic plate about 6 inches above the table and filled it with seltzer water. I moved around until I found a pleasing composition using the central part of the plate as a diagonal element. You can also try this with flowers and other subjects!
