It was a beautiful day for a Celebration of Life in Encinitas...
Another Project 52 assignment: AIR... It's a concept shot. Show "Air".
Lit from behind. Light pointed up to the background from back of the set. I hand held a bare flash overhead.
My lovely and talented daughter made Easter eggs this past Sunday. I purposely left the mess so I could make a photograph using window light and a white card...
Out and about at Stonesteps Beach, Encinitas
Here is a photograph I made of two pears (HA!) I saw in the grocery store. And below is the BTS...
Diffused window light, a bunch of black cards and camera just out of frame at bottom left corner...That's it.
This was a photograph made for Project 52. Still Life with a Flower...
- It should not require more than 20″ x 20″ of set space.
- The objects should be simple and NOT shiny. (Please no chrome or glossy black.)
- The objects should be something you can find around the house, or office, or neighborhood.
- There should be at least 5 items in the shot.
The still life must include a flower. Fake or real. The flower does not have to be the main focus of the shot, and I do NOT WANT a bunch of flowers to be the shot. In other words, the client wants a flower for a reason, we add it into the mix of other items. It may or may not be the focus of your shot… that is up to you, but the image MUST contain a flower.
The book was written in 1886: The Complete Home, by Mrs. Julia Wright, the glasses are my wife's from the early 1970's, the pocket watch was made in 1925, the bronzed baby shoe is my wife's grandfathers and the spoons...they are just old.
How did I light it? Diffused window light coming from the right with a flag to keep the background dark and a flag in the very front. White card on the right angled just enough to create a small highlight in the upper left of the spoon on the far right and also to bring out the detail of the side of the book's pages.
Inspiration for this comes from David Eustace photographer...
This portrait is one of two for my Project52 assignment. One 60" shoot through umbrella just out of frame camera right. A black card behind door, on the pillow to give her skin less brightness as light was reflecting off the light color wall.
