Scalpel to surgeon's knot

Posted by Yonatan (New York, United States) on 25 January 2010 in Business & Industry.

I have to thank my good friend Roger for helping me execute this shot.

What you are looking at is a skillfully tied set of surgeon's knots (done by Roger...mine are not as beautiful) being cut by a scalpel. This is image was made possible by my macro lens. One of the challenging aspects of this image was figuring out how to light the scalpel without getting awful reflections.

Thank you for taking some time to take a look at my photographs. I hope you enjoy your stop at my blog.

I invite you all to visit frequently and leave comments and feedback. I would really appreciate constructive criticism that will help me improve. You don't need to be a photographer to help me, tell me what you like and don't like. If you have any suggestions of interesting things to shoot or fun techniques to try I'd also love to know.

Best wishes,
