Sean's photos of the Raspberry Pi

One of the first things I did when I got my Raspberry Pi was to photograph it. The first two photos here I took on my desk just after unboxing it.

The rest I took in the garden in summer 2012, one sunny day. I put a sheet of white paper on a garden table under a tree and used my Canon EOS SLR to take some pictures. The Raspberry Pi is challenging to photograph because, as with any macro photography, it's hard to get much in focus at the same time. The photos here include a few reasonably clean ones, showing off the different ports on the Raspberry Pi, and a few shadowy ones with sunlight reflecting on the computer's metal parts, which I think make for quite moody and dramatic photos. The final photo shows the Raspberry Pi inside a transparent plastic case I bought on eBay.

I've also included here an image of my book Raspberry Pi For Dummies. If you're reviewing the book or writing about it, feel free to use the cover shot on your blog.
