    Simple Experiments with paper

    A lot more difficult to photo paper than I thought it would be - white paper photographs grey so I played with a few settings

    That's quite lovely. It's an image at which I find myself staring. Subjects like this are completely unforgiving, as opposed to a street shot where there are different interesting elements in a flowing scene. This image is eye catching because of its high quality renditions of color and tone. I very much like the dark and light vertical edges, breaks the symmetry just enough to give the image a direction. Nicely done.

    you may find that you get better results when shooting a solid red object by underexposing. It looks like the red channel has been overloaded and there are some areas that appear blocked up. I look forward to more of these.

    At some point you're going to wind up with an argyle sock.

    I prefer version 1 of the "straight shot". I think the darker tones give it a bit more pop. V4 is definitely "Scotsman on Acid".

    yep the other 2 lose more in the process & the straight is classier

    Proving to be a useful learning exercise this - next step is a bit more 3D lift & maybe dual lighting

    I'm enjoying these. With this new progression and the depth added by shadows my mind is reeling with the possibilities.
