Finding Beauty Under the Table
Today my little sister Britt came to visit, so I took the day off. We were planning on taking the day to shoot (she is a photography major). Wellllll, we sort of got side tracked. Plus the day was really quite unpleasant. Cold, windy, very gray (terrible light). So we pretty much spent the day indoors. But while we were making dinner tonight I spotted something under the table. Granted, it was on the patio table outside on the deck, but it was pretty interesting. All of the snow we got on Tuesday was melting through the grid work of the iron and making these cool little chandeliers hanging from the underside of the table. So even though I didn't venture very far for my photos today, it was pretty cool finding beauty under the table.
Table on Ice #1 - Lens: 50mm with screw on close up lens +4, f 1.8, 1/1000, ISO 400, no flash
Table on Ice #2 - Lens: 17-40mm, f 4.0, 1/60, ISO 800, no flash
Table on Ice #3 - Lens: 17-40mm, f 4.0, 1/60, ISO 800, w/on camera flash (shielded by my hand)
All had a Hue/Sat adjustment. #1 had a blue layer set to overlay, plus some burning with curves at edges. All also had some sharpening.
