My other idea was lemons and a wine glass. I am very surprised at how sharp this came out despite the fact it was hand held and 1/50 sec exposure.

Can you explain what part of the body this is.
Just want to understand how this was done.

Thanks


Its the neck, shoulder and part of the chin. The head is tilted back and angled away so it gave that part a really wierd shape, so imagine the chin now is pointing into the page towards the top right and you dont really see it. Plus the shoulders were sort of in a shrug gesture making the neck appear shorter, and plus the shadows distorted the shapes even further... I cant say i planned it exactly like this, it just sorta happened :-)
Lighting came from one table lamp. I had a this and a color version but decided this had more punch to it.

I can only guess that this is a head and a neck and shoulders. The lighting here is stunning. I'm surprised this one didn't ribbon.

Either way, congratulations on a beautiful shot, and a commendable placing.

Simply awesome lighting and tonality. Great textures and depth. Compositionally I'm not 'held' by this shot. It almost looks like more of a study shot. Just MY humble opinion.
