Continuing on–

Keeping to a theme or and assignment is not easy.  I have to think about what to do next and what fits with the theme.  Sometimes I just give up and shoot what inspires me or what I want to try.  Assignments definitely stretch me as a photographer.

Day 12/365 Right on theme–brand new.  This is really a shot of a new 55″ Samsung TV my hubby just acquired for his man cave.  I used Topaz 4 HDR on it which heightens the color as well as crisps it up–to give it interest.  I thing it makes the table worn out and the tv look dusty–it was not fingerprinted or smudged in the least–the reflections in the frame of the screen give the impression of that. I do like the bubble wrap–might keep it around for other uses.

Day 13/365  I used a silver poster  for the background.  I love the reflection.  Looks like I stacked the lemons and got one to balance on the other.  I used two ghetto lights–100 watt fluorescent 5000k light bulbs in silver reflectors from Home Depot.  One on either side.  I have a white piece of poster board propped up against the wall so I would not get reflections from the wall.  I am now wondering what the image would look like with a piece of colored poster board.  Interesting thought and something to try.

Let me know what experiments you do with backgrounds and lighting.  I love to learn from others.  Going to try capturing smoke sometime soon.

Thanks for stopping by.

About ~ ~ joanne.thomas.photographer~~

I am retired, starting a new career. I love shooting portraits. People are so fun and interesting--I try to bring out there personalities and capture them in images. Children are especially interesting little people, who love to tell you all they know and are so uninhibited. I enjoy shooting weddings to capture all the details and emotions of the day. Between photo sessions I keep shooting --to learn, to experiment--to create art. The industry is ever evolving and I want to give my clients the most exciting and lasting images, full of their love of life expressing their personality.
