Light...

52 Photos Project


Monday night saw me playing with tea lights, a small metal table, a mirror, and my 50mm lens... (it also  saw me trying to keep Pepper from jumping on said table and creating a whole new photo session, possibly involving emergency Vet treatment).

I took these using various apertures - f/1.8 gives beautiful bokeh.  Processed in LR4 - I boosted the clarity and the contrast, and because the colour was very orange, I went into the separate channels, lowering the reds and upping the greens to give more golden tones.

And a few variotions...

Wow! that's all we'll say. Wow!

Thanks for your condolences. We miss Au terribly. We're trying to think about how he had a very good, long life but you know how it is.

I absolutely love these! Guess it is time for me to go buy some tea lights and have some fun. So glad you were able to keep it a vet free session.

What great shots! It's hard to pick the one I like the best, but I think it's the bottom reflection that appeals the most. I'd be happy to hang any of them, framed, in my house.

Thank you all for your kind words :O)
