I should be doing a lot more macro work now that Christmas season is upon us. There are so many colorful and highly detailed decorations all around to capture. This is an arrangement that I put together featuring a Waterford glass ornament set in a clear glass bowl filled with other old glass ornaments. I lit these from both above and below to bring out the sparkle of the main subject and to have the background bright as well.
