Photo project painting with light – water

Time for this week’s photos in Jen’s and my photo poject painting with light. This time I wanted to play with light and water. I have noticed when I shower that the light from the window creates a nice stripe effect on the water from the shower so I decided to play with that. These photos are the result of backlit shower water and variation of shutterspeed, and depth of field, for creating the stripes of water contrasting the square pattern of the background tiles, and having fun in Photoshop to create the colour effects.

These pojects to me is about playing around and having fun and learning by doing and experimenting. For artistic quality I recommend Jen’s photos 😉

Photo project: painting with light

FINALLY I get to upload my photos for this week in Jen’s and my photo Project. I didn’t quite get the results I had hoped. I was aiming for some low key lighting of my tulips but failed that – the result came out like just flat light doing nothing for the Beautiful tulips. Luckily tulips are pretty in themselves even in my bad lighting so I put the least failed photo up here.

After I failed the tulips I started experimenting with the torch and writing instead. It is getting better but oh my god it’s difficult. To know what you actually write into thin air and then also writing it reversed so that it becomes right in camera. Gee – I have like no idea where my letters go and how I shape them – the letters A, E and H…. come on! This takes a LOT of practice before I can make anything of it really. But you can at least see what it says, right??

I can’t wait to see what Jen came up with today. Her idea sounded really cool. Have a look!

Tree project 3 – black and white texture

Time has not allowed me to go out to take more photos so I have to make do with some ”left-overs” from last time. This means I am not too happy about these. But as this creative journey partly for me is to learn to try and experiment and fail – this entry is an exersice in that. The theme of Jen’s and my tree project this week, is a continuation of last week’s texture theme. This time texture in black and white.

I like black and white photos. Just the fact that they are black and white can make a boring image a little less boring. But it is still not enough to take away the boring completely out of the photo.  So why not take this opportunity to just play around a bit?

First some regular photos. Black and white photos are good for a graphic effect to display the pattern of the bare twigs and branches I think. Just wish I had time to go out again to try to do it a bit more interesting. But, this is it for now.

Now let’s play. Here I took one of the photos above and put it together with another photo, previously posted on the blog. I thought the pattern of the trees in this photo could be a nice pattern to mix with another photo… well. I tried. I played. I had fun. 🙂 That’s the main point of this project of ours after all! 🙂

Don’t forget to check out Jen’s photos in her blog. I bet she rocks this theme as she did the last one!
