p.1 #1 · #435 What's on your hard drive?




I figured I had to ramp it up a little this week so I ripped apart an old 8 GB hard drive (crikey, I have THUMB drives bigger than that now). This is basically a macro shot of the spindle and the platter, which is like a mirror. I placed it on my laptop keyboard, fired up a 5250 terminal emulator for the green screen backdrop and put a little bit of blue gelled flash off to the right.

Hope you enjoy, comments welcome!

PS Canon 1d3 and a 100mm macro (the non L, USM version) at about 30 seconds at f8. I did a little focus stacking and had to blend in the image with the text to get it looking right, so it's a little more PS work than I normally do by about... a lot.

Nice shot of something we use everyday but don't often see. Fits the WA perfectly.

There's something very "clean" about this pic. I like it a lot.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

I love the faint blue and lavender reflections. It has a peaceful vibe about it.

Thanks Yakim I've never disassembled a hard drive before but it was really cool looking inside. I should try taking a few of the disks off the stack to see what I can discover, it's all very intriguing to me.

Thanks Jade.

I agree with Yakim. Very clean. Who knew a hard drive could be so pretty.
