Big Blue

Active Assignment Weekly: March 30 to April 5 - AAW Tribute.

 

Look back through the AAW pool,since it began,and choose a picture that you like and can be adapted to your photograph style. The reference photograph can be of ANYTHING as long as it was the major influence in the creation of YOUR photograph. If it is not clear what the connection is you can explain it.

 

The AAW members photograph that you are referencing should be linked electronically or shown in the first comment box.

WIT: I took what appeared to be a clean piece of glass and placed in on a piece of black foamcore board. I then placed the big blue sphere of rock and the three marbles on the glass. Lighting was achieved through light painting with a flashlight. For post processing I cloned out the 3278 dust specks that turned out to be on the glass (I didn't get them all). I also did a little cloning work to obscure the seam in the background. Cropped and some random adjustments of levels and contrast.

 

Thanks to MattNJohnson for providing the inspiration for the photo.
