Not a lot of pre-planning or effort into today’s image. The primary goal was an exploration into color and working with an alternative style of whitebox that I saw online. It involves taping a sheet of translucent paper (in my case, parchment paper from my kitchen) against an outside window and letting the natural light diffuse over the entire image. I also have a thick piece of glass from an old end-table that I used on the bottom surface for a slight reflection. Final steps were to dump some black elastic bands on the surface and contrast it with a red rubber band.
As I explore other images on the mostly365.com site (which I regularly submit my images for review), I’m getting some good ideas for trying different techniques with my camera. It’s a little humbling to see all of the great images on the site, but I know that I will get there with some practice.
