BEAUTY IN THE FOREST

RED-ROSE-BLACK-AND-WHITE-SELECTIVE

Another Black and White selective shot. I went a gathering for dead leaves in the local park, and layed them in a paint tray with the rose head on top and photographed them at f10 to get adequate depth of field with my micro four thirds Olympus and 60mm macro.I then desaturated the leaves leaving the rose red and boosted the contrast slightly.

INNER SPACE

OIL-WATER-ABSTRACT

Another abstract created with olive oil, water and some coloured card. The method used this time was to stand a glass dish with flat base on a sheet of picture glass which I placed on top of 12 soft drink cans, three in each corner. Using two table lamps with 60w bulbs I illuminated underneath the dish standing on the glass plate raised off the ground. I then placed CD covers from a music CD on the floor below the dish shooting the oil floating in the water with the CD cover giving a surreal background effect.
Give it a try! It is great fun and you can get all sorts of wonderful and weird effects. Please click the photo to see more of my abstracts on my Smugmug site.

This was taken when i used to work on the Cruise Ships in the Caribbean. We used to dock in Barbados once a week aboard the TSS Festivale which was a beautiful ship. An old fashioned cruise liner belonging to Carnival Cruise Lines . I wasn’t serious about photography back then but it was a wonderful experience in my life. The Image is of Bajan life.
