Kitchen Table Macro Photography

3 December 2011
A night trip to Ubin with high expectations but drenched by the wet weather. The sky opened right after our dinner and we stood around the restaurant waiting for the rain to stop. Some of us could not stand waiting and ended up taking umbrellas out to look for subjects.

End result was a mini photoshoot on the restaurant (more like coffeeshop) table.

Found the Lizard on dinner table!! nicky_bts_ubin_lizard#5 And this was how I shot the pic. lol. Thanks to Lance for taking this photo. Flashes triggered wirelessly.

With our incredible luck, the rain stopped while we were waiting for the ferry at the jetty!!!
