Shattered DVD VII by Niophe Shattered DVD VII by Niophe
Nikon D300s
AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED
Focal Length 105mm (1:1 Magnification)
Shutter Speed: 1/6
Aperture: f/9
ISO 320
5/28/2011 - 5:05 PM MDT

Technique:
I microwaved a DVD, then broke it with my hands, angled it so the reflections generated a lot of color, and took a picture!

Cropped and edited in Aperture, with a few minor sharpening and contrast adjustments.

Others in the Series

This is beautiful! I had microwaved CDs before just for the light show (in my youth)... but i never realized how beautiful the surface looks!

Thanks! Just gotta hold them at the right angle to see it... (and DVDs work much better than CDs). :)

loved them all, color is always a pleaser, the random patterns & graceful beauty that result from the destruction is very poetic. this one in particular seems to be loaded with emotion. :)

Yeah - I find that destruction usually results in very appealing patterns and colors... not just in DVDs, but things like rust, mold, etc. :)
