hickory nuts

thanks Camellia for the guidance & inspiration.. that was fun!

here are my first attempts.. playing with the iso and f stop.. i will scrounge up a better flash light, this one left rings of light.. and then i notice the dust and debris that fell from the hickory nuts.. [shrugs] i'll take more time with whatever i zero in on next..

for details, i'll have to check the exif data.. i was playing with them till i got what i liked.. and these were taken on my desk, sitting on a dark art book in daylight, with a flashlight shining on them.. no tripod [i don't own one]

thanks again Camellia.. i've got some new inspiration now..

Great job!  I really need to get a good camera now as you are all inspiring me to do new things.

Results are pretty good. Tripod would be easy but there are other ways. Use the self timer of the camera or if you have a remote. Use your smartphone as a trigger ( with app ). Or an old cable release should still fit a modern camera. Go for it;

Camellia just turned me onto a remote app for my phone.. I didn't even know such things existed.. so I'm going to play with that today..  [smile]

Love them Sherry! Love the darkness love the angles. Looks like you have a new way of playing. As for the tripod...the only reason you would need it is if you have hand shake when pressing the shutter, in that case there are apps that you can use as a trigger release mechanism. I use Nikon's "snapbridge" on my android cellphone. I really like it because not only can I use the shutter release on it but I can even focus the lens  through the app ( full view on my cellphone of the subject being captured). I checked and Canon supposedly has an app called EOS Remote which is free, might be worth checking into it. 
Now you have your entire "backyard" to shoot smile One more thing your flashlight....move it closer or further to get rid of the circle or use coffee filter or printer paper or even parchment paper to diffuse it...just some ideas.

I just put that remote app on my phone and dang... even more things to play with.. very cool.. and I have some tracing paper that should work on the flash light.. some new stuff to play with.. I spend a lot of time alone.. the fella is usually working or sleeping.. 
Thank you!!!
