Keith's Dobro


In reordering my Web site, some things must go and others will be reorganized. I'm trying to decide if I should keep this macro shot of my buddy Keith's dobro. I like all the lines and shapes, but I take macro shots of everything. What do you think?

  1. I think it's a tough call. Macro shots are difficult, and need to stand on their own as well as show great detail of tiny things. I think this one is not quite over the top for me only because I still don't know what it is by looking at it. I might not be alone in that, and if a person does not know what it is, perhaps they don't want to buy it for their wall. UNLESS, unless, you are going for abstractness. I might be alone, also in my opinion. haahaha! I mean, even though you've said what it is, I've never heard of that. :P

    I have looked at your Etsy shop and love, for example, the stained glass window diamonds....so lovely, and not in need of any explanation. I think you should build your site with images which are as strong as possible. And nothing else. Quality is far more important than quantity.

    Now that I have rambled on and on, I shall stop myself, and leave room for others to comment! :D

  2. I soooo love this one! However, I am one that loves abstract imagery...so maybe that makes me a little biased.

  3. Ladies, you've given me lots to think about! I don't think I'll put it in my Etsy shop, but I was trying to decide if it should be included in my larger portfolio.

  5. With the cold grays and metal edge to this piece I definitely feel like it has a different vibe then your other photos. I see no harm in keeping it your miscellaneous portfolio file for now, and possibly create more macro photos of metal objects. I know years ago I was fascinated by taking abstract macro shots of the chrome on my husbands Harley. I loved the curves and reflections, and the cool icy color.
