Art Deco Color

Uploaded: May 03, 2002


It was raining outside and I tried some indoor shots. Liked the bright yellow color in the martini glass next to the dark blue background, and the 4 petals are from a peach rose. f/2.8, 100 sp. film.

Not too bad. I had to learn the hard way tho Elaine, unless you are just wanting a "softer" image that make this come out sharp you have to use an f/stop of at least f/22. I think also; maybe, coming down to a more level angle to the martine glass might work. I do like the angle just a tad more DOF would be all you would really need? JMO. #5393

Thanks for the comments! I did have some photos of this from eye level at the martini glass, and while they came out okay composition-wise, they were not as sharp as this one seemed to be. Yep, I took this before I really knew about exposure and stops, so putting it to f/22 would have been a good idea. My light meter suggested f/2.8 so that is what I went with :)

Thanks for the comments! I like doing these kinds of photos, so I'll try some with f/22 and eye level next time and see what happens :)

I was also going to say, Elaine, be sure to use a tripod because you definetly will get slow shutter speeds. Good luck with the plans ahead:) #7823
