The remains

The remains

When my daughter’s 2006 MacBook Pro finally bit the dust, I took it apart to see what I might be able to salvage. Turns out the only part that is in any way compatible with any newer computers was the hard drive, so I put that in a USB enclosure and sold the rest for parts.

Mamiya 645 AFD with ZD digital back. 1/125" @ f/16, 80mm f/4 macro lens. ISO 50, WB flash.

Post in Capture One and Photoshop.

Strobist info: Photogenic PL1500SL @ 1/16 + 3/4 in 2′ x 3′ softbox behind and above the arrangement and aimed down at about 45ยบ. This gives a direct reflection of the light in all the metal components, and because everything is on white paper, it fills in its own shadows with diffuse bounced light.

Now if only I had a tilt-shift lens…
