Photograph of vice clamps

I recently visited my uncle, a mechanical wizard who builds his own custom cars. So many tools and auto parts waited to be photographed! A row of vice clamps in particular caught my eye, and they looked so contrasty that I decided to do a black and white shot of them.

Even though I’m not very mechanically inclined, I still find myself drawn to machinery. In a way, each piece is its own work of art. The only real fly in the ointment was the lighting. Fluorescents everywhere! To avoid using flash while free holding the camera, I had to bump up the ISO to very high levels: something I don’t normally do. Fortunately, Topaz DeNoise came to the rescue.

Exposure Data: ISO 6400, f/4.5, 1/100
