Eisner’s picture of Nature

Eisner's Nature 

If you’ve just bought the latest, fanciest DSLR camera, eat humble pie! An entemology professor from Cornell, Dr. Thomas Eisner, had created a series of stunning photographs of nature – flowers, bugs, etc. – using nothing more than a color copier and a black cloth. While the images are stunning, he made it sound so simple:

It was like playing with a Lego set. There were only two provisos. Parts had to be laid out upside down on the copier’s stage, because the copier ‘sees’ the stage from beneath, and the arrangements, once composed, had to be covered with a black velvet cloth to exclude ambient light from the picture.
