David,
Wonderful! If I were judging this in a print competition, I would have to score it very close to 100 -- can't see anything that detracts from it. Composition and lighting are great -- your use of subtractive lighting shows a strong understanding of technique. Congratulations.
God Bless,
Greg

Been viewing these POTD's for about a year, and I had to post about this one. I also like the image of a small bowl within the liquid in the glass, and the curve distortion. Nice job.

David ...congrats on this outstanding pic!! You say "black catches"...Do you mean the barn doors that frame the light "bulb" on studio lights? I'm not too familiar with all studio lighting equipment. Anyway, enjoy your win today!

Hey David. First of all, congrats on you First Place! Love your shot. Very clean, very simple, very beautiful.

Could you tell me a little bit more about the setup? What do mean by "black catches"?


To love this comment, log in above
2/2/2005 6:38:49 PM

 
David Savoie  

by black catches I mean black sheets, so no extra light aside from what I wanted would hit the glass and bottle.

i set the two on a stool, and then shot from in front of them, with the black sheets hanging around.
