Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Shallow DOF in Red (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D
Location: Paso Robles, CA, USA
Date: Jan 2, 2012
Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/250
Galleries: Macro, Music
Date Uploaded: Jan 2, 2012

Shot with Nikon D700 and a 50mm f/1.8. Lit background (foam board) with two SB-600's gelled red and lit the main guitar body with an SB-800 through a 'Lightsphere' high and camera right (about 12 inches away from the guitar). The red glow around the neck of the guitar is bounced light from the foam core onto my highly reflective granite counter tops.

I am a little bummed out by the blemish on the tone knob, but it is what it is I guess. :)

Thought this was really clean and well executed, was one of the few 10's that I gave out in the challenge. Very high quality photo, thought it should have been higher placed in the challenge.

Red. Nice selective focus. And I have to give you an extra point for the title -- love it when they work on more than one level.

Everything is great, it's just a touch underexposed.

P 90's, nice top, wraparound bridge and some binding. In the treble position- The cream works well, and the red background makes it a subtle interesting shot.
