Captured Heart...

Shooting Tip:

 

I received this Crystal Heart as a gift… To me a heart symbolizes life and love…

 

I was thinking how best to say thank you and to show how special this gift is to me…

I knew that if I introduce a hand and if the heart was in the hand that this image would speak to life and to love…

 

The first thing I think about is the light… and the kind of light to use…

If I used my LED light on the Crystal, it would have been too blue and I wanted the Crystal Heart to have a warm cast to it.

So I used a regular flashlight to highlight it… Now I said I didn’t want to use a LED light on the Crystal… But I knew that I need some blue to reflect on the hand, or it would the be to orangey red… So I use my florescent light box to reflect on the hand…

 

Lastly I wanted my Crystal to glow so I held my flashlight longer in one spot on the Crystal…

 

I hope that you see the Life and the Love glowing in the hand…
