lighter flash macro by MTolotos lighter flash macro by MTolotos
My entry to the Beauty in Everyday Objects - Macro Contest

normal lighter "in action" at magnification ratio of 1:1
Camera: Nikon D5000
Lens: AF-S Micro Nikkor 85mm 1:3.5 G ED DX

Clamped the lighter at a vice to fix it which was necessary to place the camera (on a tripod of course) at the right distance. DOF was very small which made it difficult to get the right point sharp. Two extra common desk lamps for lighting, no sunlight. Little black background did the rest...

... ehh - and about 1000 photos :meditation: to get about 3 good ones.

Its rather difficult to get the timing and not moving the camera a bit by using the lighter with the other hand at the same time... :D

no adjustments except of cropping the photo a little bit.
