The photo was taken in my backyard in Chicago, Illinois. My wife and I tried to grow blackberries but this was all we got. We didn’t even get to eat them since some bird beat us to it.
I used a Nikon Coolpix P7700 with a Raynox DCR-150 (+4.8) multi-element close-up lens. I used ACDSee Ultimate 10.1 to adjust the lighting and boost the contrast.
