Purple Ive Curves

The subject was sitting on a purple sheet of paper, and the natural light coming through the skylight was gelled with an A3 sheet of magenta translucent plastic. I tried all sorts of lighting involving a flash, but wasn't happy with those. A red one of those sheets was placed camera-right to fill in the lighter reflections along the right-hand edge,


(This really ended up more pink or magenta than the purple I started out aiming for; I'm keeping the title, though.)


Update: My family have pointed out that the title is a bit subtle; "Ive" is meant to be a reference to Apple's head of industrial design, Jonathan Ive.


"Make a photograph of a beautiful simple shape, such as an egg, today. Utilize lighting and focus to make it sing."
