Solitude by neeta Solitude by neeta
Glass - Water - Chess Piece (horse)
---
Part of a school assignment, where the main goal was to take photos of glass with different lighting.
---
Camera: Canon eos 300
Objective: Sigma 105mm
Film: Kodak T-max 100
---
I'm sorry about the poor quality, but the scanner... :ohmygod: It's broken.
The bubbles are there because the water got a bit hot under the softbox. I could have removed them, but I chose not to.
If I manage to fix the scanner, I'll submit more from these experiments. :)
Working with dead objects give you a sweet feeling of absolute control. I spent three hours with that glass.

This is so simple and beautiful. The bubbles actually help to define the glass chesspiece's outline against the black background--if they weren't there, then you couldn't see the whole chess piece. Nice job.

Wow det var vakkert! Veldig inspirerende idé
Jeg blir så stolt når nordmenn/nordkvinner gjør slike nydelige ting. Da får jeg lyst til å si: "jeg bor i samme land som hun der jeg!"
Flott beskjært, pene toner. Den tunge rammen passer veldig bra. nydelig.

yes
something more like this
glass on glass

transparent
to the point of
appearing free

but clearly
quicksand
is now a toast
to armlessness

and pawns are
drowning
in concavity

Nice composition. Great lighting :-)
The contrast came out really good. Nice "silvery" look on the glass.
The bubbles and the spash in the water is timed perfect in my eyes.
Great work!

I thought it was some kind of odd pour shot. Like the glass was moving up and down slowly on a table and the shot was taken with water partially coming up.

though I enjoy the lighting. What would it look like with the horse with light being bounced off a white background and lighting from the back.

just out of curiousity what kind of studio lights did you use? I like the speedos at my school, but those are the only kind of strobes I've worked with.

I think that the bubbles are what give this piece life and interest. I like the work it is a great idea, though I am disappointed that the rook is facing towards the lens. I think that it becomes to obscured and distracting to the enjoyment of the shot. Instead of being wowed but the stark contrasts and the detail I was left pondering what the object really was, a quick scan of the description lets me know but then I am plagued with "Why is it not rotated 90 degrees?". Now I know that if you had wanted it shot from the side then that is what you would have done (and probably did), but for me this piece feels like a missed opportunity. Anyhow take it or leave it . . . I do like the idea and I am impressed with the stark contrasts and the play of light, hope that you got a good grade. :)
