Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Silhouettes II (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro for Nikon
Location: Makeshift kitchen studio, Oxfordshire
Date: May 15, 2005
Aperture: f10
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/13
Galleries: Portraiture, Studio
Date Uploaded: May 15, 2005

Kitchen Studio Setup:

1. Take a long cardboard tube, cut in half.
2. Selotape some coloured tracing paper between each half of the cut tube.
3. Remove the shade from the living room table lamp and place the lamp horizontal, resting on a box of tissues (note, if not careful this can be a fire hazard!).
4. Crack open a bottle of your finest red and let your wife (model) consume most of it.
5. Fill a glass with water and red food colouring (as the red wine has by now been consumed, the technical reason is becasue light shines through coloured water better!).
6. Shoot away, ignor all the 'you fool' comments!

Post Processing:
Shot in raw, slight exposure compensation and brightness/contrast tweaks. Cropped and edge sharpened. Some minor marks on the background and water splashes in the glass removed.
