For this weeks’ Monochrome Madness, I decided to present this image, another experiment with the light. This time it was a candle light, by accident.
In the evenings I like to light up candles in my home, I find that gentle light very calming. As I was watching something on TV, I noticed how this clock looks really beautiful under the candle light, with interesting shadows dancing on its surface. So, I grabbed my phone and took few images, changing the position of the candle, to change the light and the casting of shadows.
In post-processing I played with dodge and burn, adjusting the light and dark parts once again. Doing that, I realised I was adding some more contrast, which I find very interesting… The way you can manipulate the image, using so many different techniques to get to the same result.
That is all I have for you this week… for more excellent entries, you can check tomorrow Leanne’s blog Leanne Cole PHOTOGRAPHY.
