Out of Tape

Uploaded: June 11, 2013


Another series of photos I have been meaning to add to my photo portfolio are those of cross-polarization. In this example of cross-polarization there are actually two plastic tape dispensers, both of which are “out of tape”. One on the bottom is lying flat on top of a laptop monitor (which, due to anti-glare technology produces polarized light), and the other one is upright on top of it. The images were then captured with a 72mm polarizing filter on my 150mm-macro lens attached to a DSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera set at ISO 800 and f/16. The final image was post-processed in Adobe Lightroom. Entered into the “Contrast” (Monthly Theme for June 2013) category.

GPS: Approximate location, latitude 47° 26' 15.77" N, longitude 120° 20' 30.04" W.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
