This is an other piece of driftwood that sparks imagination. For me it is the head of some sort of a monster, or is it a deformed, genetically altered skull of an animal?
For next weeks exercise go and collect four small rocks or stones that you can put on a table. Have a great week-end!
I called this image “Open Mouth.”The dynamic of the lines and the simple black background give this picture an interesting appeal. In addition color does not get in the way this time. I also converted the image into black and white and decided to use the color version.
Enjoy and happy Thursday!
I found a piece of wood that was partially burned. I decided to shoot with an open lens to get a shallow depth of field.
I carefully arranged my pieces of driftwood and decided to use a barn door strobe from the left and a fill in strobe 45 degrees from the right. I used as little light power as possible and I used two neutral density filters to get this image.
Enjoy and as always happy photographing!
This is my third exercise involving wood. This exercises require that you go out through and collect pieces of wood. You need to take them home and here you can experiment with them. I use a light tent and usually two light source to create my images.
I collected pieces of driftwood. In this image I used two pieces of driftwood. I opted for a very shallow depth of field and an even light. I also converted the image to black & white to put an emphasis on the structure of the wood.
As always, enjoy this exercise!
