Chequers

This photograph is subject to change as it's an initial attempt/concept. A wine glass is half filled (ever the optimist!) and placed on a table against a wall. Wrapping paper is selotaped to the wall and the glass is then lined up so it intersects down the middle. The refraction of the water/glass makes this fantastic chequers effect.

 

Unfortunately the wrapping paper was very reflective and creased, hence why I have gone for a black and white conversion....It is otherwise straight out of camera.

 

With some new paper I am going to attempt to work on this idea and produce a better overall image. Watch this space!

 

ISO100 | ƒ/4.0 | 1/250th second
