They can be freely used for personal use, but any publicly accessible reproduction should not alter the image and should cite this website as the source of the image. The photographs were taken using a Canon EOS 6D with a 100mm f/2.8-32 macro lens and using a lens-mounted white LED light ring that I built myself! Many photos have a shallow depth of field — this really helps in allowing desktop icons to stand out.
