I have been working almost exclusively with my Sony 50mm Macro lens of late, I adore it, the images are superb. I decided one very hot day to grab some ordinary household items and have a play…this is a kitchen fork on black Perspex (or Plexiglass) and some natural light. ISO100, F/4.5, 1/60 second. I…
