Contemplation 365/345

Bit late with yesterdays shot, as I was away from the computer all day.

As the light box was still sat on the coffee table from the leaf shot, it was put to use again.

I know this is probably not the kind of shot most would think of for a light table, but I like the effect of lighting from below on a solid object. With this little bronze statuette, the metal has almost blackened with age, it has also been set on fire a few times :)

Even when given a polish, it is still dark, but there is enough shine to reflect the light nicely. A white reflector was also held above to bounce a bit of light back onto the subject.

Only editing here was to remove a couple of specks of dust that I missed when polishing it. Even the background required no adjustment :)

 

Previous shot of the DIY light table below for those who have not seen it before.
